Eugene Onegin – Schwerin
"A vocal and dramatic sovereign is Lenski. Sung with very well placed high notes and a cultivated technique by Jeffrey Stewart, who was recently a celebrated Edgardo at the Kömische Oper, Berlin".
Ingeborg Kalkus – SVZ.
Review for Roméo et Juliet
"Of the singers, the highlight of the evening was Jeffrey Stewart who clearly demonstrated the relationship between Lebensfreude and intellectualism, and vocally, with wonderful soft singing and a sculpted, ringing tenor, portrayed every aspect of this intoxication of love".
Rainer Bessling – Foyer.
Jeff Stewart | Opera Page
Jeff Stewart made his professional operatic debut as Gaston in La Traviata at the Cambridge arts theatre, whilst still a student at GSMD.
He has performed opera all over Europe, including appearances for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, English National Opera, Opera North, Holland Park Opera, English Touring Opera, Komische Oper, Berlin, Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Düsseldorf and the Macedonian Natioanal Opera.
He spent two years as the house lyric tenor in Schwerin which was followed by a further two years in Bremen and a period in Coburg.
Jeff’s list of performed repertoire is extraordinarily wide ranging. He has sung everything from early music to 21st Century opera and steered himself though virtually every fach from light lyric tenor to dramatic tenor.
Among his favourite roles are Male Chorus (Rape of Lucretia), Peter Grimes, Hermann (Pique Dame), Canio (I Pagliacci) and Romeo (Romeo et Juliette).
But now he feels he is entering what will be the most exciting and challenging phase of his career as he embarks on life as a dramatic tenor.
