Scott Belluz


Scott Belluz, praised for his ‘warm, rich voice’ (La Marseillaise) and ‘bravura vocal performances’ (Now Magazine), brings his sensitive and committed artistry to repertoire ranging from 17th century to newly composed works. He has received acclaim for his performances in the world premieres of numerous Canadian operatic works including: the title role in Omar Daniel’s The Shadow with Tapestry Opera, L’Oiseau in Gilles Tremblay’s Opéra Féerie with Chants Libres, Damien in R. Murray Schafer’s The Children’s Crusade with Soundstreams, as well as concert performances of Unsuk Chin’s Cantatrix Sopranica with Soundstreams and Salvatore Sciarrino’s Luci Mie Traditrici with the University of Toronto. In March 2020, Scott created the role of Jimmy Gin in The Industry’s site-specific premiere of Sweet Land in Los Angeles State Historic Park. Winner of the 2021 Best New Opera award by the Music Critics Association of North America, this acclaimed, boundary-pushing opera was also released as a film adaptation and a live album.
