Praised for his “clear, flexible” and “voluptuous” voice, countertenor Cameron Shahbazi is quickly emerging as one of the most promising artists of his generation.
The 2018/2019 season marked a house debut for Shahbazi at the Theater Aachen singing Disinganno in Handel's
Il trionfo del Tempo del Disinganno. He appeared in several concerts and recitals including his afternoon recital debut at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. In the Netherlands, Shahbazi returned to De Nationale Opera & Ballet with the Baroque & Beyond Orchestra as part of their afternoon concert series, was part of the Handel in Dublin concert with the Dudok Quartet conducted by maestro Kenneth Montgomery, and was invited to join pianists Lucas and Arthur Jussen in concert at the TivoliVredenburg.
Shahbazi was honoured to team up with the Prostate Cancer Research Center UK as an ambassador, for which he appeared in recital alongside graduates of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden’s Jette Parker Young Artist Program and Dame Ann Murray.
