Described by the BBC as “England’s Mario Lanza” and "simply brilliant" by The Times, Alexander Grove is one of the formost operatic tenors to have emerged from the UK and performing internationaly. He is an award-winning lyric-spinto tenor, performing on stage and screen, known for his versatility, wide range of repertoire, interpretations and stagecraft. Currently signed to Universal Music and a resident tenor at Gothenburg Opera, Sweden, Alexander is a former boy chorister of St Paul’s Cathedral, London and later trained as an undergraduate and post-graduate at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and the Georg Solti Accademia di Bel Canto in Italy.
