Michael Lewis, one of Australia’s most respected singers, is highly regarded for his command of both operatic and concert repertoire.

Throughout his distinguished career, he has worked with many of the world’s leading conductors, directors, singers and orchestras in Europe, UK, America, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and Asia in a wide range of roles from Mozart to Wagner to 20th and 21st Century works. From a repertoire of 45 roles, Michael is particularly recognised for his interpretations of the work of Verdi, having performed 12 of the Italian master’s works. 

On the concert platform, Michael has appeared with numerous orchestras around the world and all of Australia’s symphony orchestras, his repertoire encompassing all major baritone works.

A much sought-after teacher, Michael teaches privately in Sydney and also as visiting voice teacher at WAAPA.

Michael was awarded an OAM in 2008, for services to the arts and the community.
