Asitha Tennekoon


Winner of the 2016/17 Dora Award for Best Male Performance in Opera for his depiction of Paul in Tapestry Opera’s Rocking Horse Winner, Sri Lankan tenor Asitha Tennekoon has been praised for “.. his silky, emotional presence on stage – both vocally and dramatically” (Globe & Mail)

Following his recent recital performance, ‘A Song for All Seasons’, with soprano Erin Wall, Tennekoon’s upcoming engagements include workshop performances of Bound with Against The Grain Theatre, a company and role debut as Polidoro in Scarlatti’s Ernani with Opera Lafayette in Washington DC and New York City, and the world premiere of The Overcoat, a co-production with Tapestry Opera, Canadian Stage Company and Vancouver Opera.
