WYNNE EVANS

Wynne is a professionally trained opera singer with over 25 years of experience.  His first two albums went straight to number 1 in the Classical Charts. Born in Southwest Wales, he studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the National Opera Studio in London.

Throughout his career his operatic performances have taken him to major opera houses around the world, from The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to Paris Opera De Lyon and the Metropolitan Opera in New York.  His roles at the Royal Opera and Welsh National Opera have included DUCA Rigoletto, RODOLFO La Bohème and ALFREDO La Traviata.  He sang the role of PIANGI in the 25-year anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera, which was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall to cinemas worldwide and has been released on DVD.  Wynne has also given over 200 performances at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Currently a radio broadcaster, he can be heard on his daily high-rating weekday radio show on BBC Radio Wales.   He has previously had shows on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM.  Wynne has also starred in his very own TV series on BBC One Wales, Wynne at the Deep End and presented for Children In Need, The International Eisteddfod and St Davids Day for BBC One Wales as well as presenting 4 series of his own TV Show Am Ddrama for S4C.

As a lifelong supporter of Tottenham Hotspur, Wynne was delighted to perform at their final game at White Hart Lane and reprised the song at the opening of the new stadium to 62,000 fans in 2019. He has also performed at over 20 Welsh rugby internationals including famously responding to the New Zealand Haka.

He is an experienced host for corporate events and can regularly been seen presenting awards ceremonies and performing at events.

In case you think you recognise Wynne, you would be absolutely right!  He is the household personality that has, over the years, appeared in millions of homes for the Go Compare TV adverts as the spoof opera star Gio Compario.  Not only does Wynne appear in the adverts he is the brains behind writing and producing them.

As well as being a trustee of Grange Park Opera, and Patron of Ty Cymorth and Tenovus Cancer Care, he has an honorary Fellowship from The University of Wales and was honoured by the National Eisteddfod with the title of Gorsedd of the Bards.
