Jonathan Stoughton

„The two leads [Tristan und Isolde] were superbly taken by Elaine McKrill […] and by the up and coming Jonathan Stoughton, Longborough's next Siegfried, and already a mature and phenomenally expressive artist so tremendous that he actually coped with the insanely demanding Act III monologues and emerged heroically for what must have been a very welcome death.”

Praised as “full-voiced, focussed and fearless” [Opera Magazine] and “ardent, fresh toned and promisingly tireless” [The Guardian], Jonathan Stoughton’s significant debuts as Bacchus (‘Ariadne auf Naxos’), Prinz (‘Rusalka’) and Siegfried (‘Siegfried’) have established him as one of the most exciting British Heldentenors to emerge in recent years. His repertoire also includes Siegfried (‘Siegfried’ and ‘Götterdämmerung’) Bacchus, Erik, Florestan, Stolzing, Don José, Radames, Gustavo and Jimmy (Alwa in the American ‘Lulu’). The 2017/18 season began, for him, with his debut at Opera North in the role of Turridu in the new production of ‘Cavalleria rusticana’. In January 2019, he made his debut as Max in Krenek's ‘Johnny spielt auf’ at the Prague State Opera. In 2019/20, he made his debut as Tristan and performed as Siegfried at the Henry Wood Hall in London. He also made his debut at the Nationaltheater Mannheim as Kaiser (‘Frau ohne Schatten’). Up from the season 2020/21, he will be a member of the ensemble of the Nationaltheater Mannheim where he will be singing all the big roles of the German repertoire. Siegmund, Siegfried, Parsifal, Erik, Stolzing, Bacchus, Kaiser etc. In Leipzig, he sang Götterdämmerung- Siegfried (‘Der Ring in einem Abend) in April 2021. The production was streamed.
The premiere of Simplicius Simplicissimus is planned at the Nationaltheater Mannheim in May 2021, in which he will be debutimg as Einsiedel. This production will certainly be staged in Mannheim at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season,  followed by the new production of Albert Herring, in which he will make his debut as Dr. Upfold, der Bürgermeister. In the same season follows his German debuts as Siegmund, Parsifal, Erik, Florestan, Max and Siegfried.
