At the age of eleven, English countertenor Jake Arditti Yniold sang in 'Pelléas et Mélisande' for the Glyndebourne Opera Festival and appeared in numerous English National Opera productions. After his prize-winning performance at the 2012 Innsbruck Early Music Festival Singing Competition, his career developed rapidly. He sings not only baroque, virtuoso parade roles in operas such as Handel's 'Rinaldo' (Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow), 'Riccardo Primo' (London Handel Festival) or 'Giulio Cesare' (Teatro Colón and Theater an der Wien), but also rare roles such as Emone in Traetta's 'Antigone' (Vienna Chamber Opera), Euripilo/La Discordia/Polluce in Cavalli's 'Elena' (Festival d'Aix en Provence, Lille and Lisbon) or Apollo in Legrenzi's 'La Divisione del Mondo' (Strasbourg, Mulhouse, Colmar, Nancy, Versailles and Cologne). He recently made his role debut as David in Handel's 'Saul' (Theater an der Wien), sang the title role in Handel's 'Rinaldo' for the Glyndebourne Festival and the title role in Corselli's 'Achille in Sciro' at the Teatro Real Madrid. Modern roles include Voice of Apollo in 'Death in Venice' (Stuttgart), Prince Gogo in Ligeti's 'Le grand macabre' (Essen) and 'SUM' by Max Richter and Wayne McGregor (Royal Opera House's Linbury Theatre). He is also a regular guest in numerous concert halls on both sides of the Atlantic. In the 23/24 season he can be heard at Theater Basel in 'L'incoronazione di Poppea' as Nerone.
