Finnish bass-baritone Juha Uusitalo was discovered as a major vocal talent in the mid-1990s and over the course of the next decade he became one of the world’s pre-eminent dramatic voices.

In demand around the globe, Wagner’s Wotan, Wanderer and Fliegende Holländer became his calling cards, alongside Jokanaan and Scarpia, and took him to Wiener Staatsoper under Franz Welser-Möst, Teatro alla Scala Milan, San Francisco Opera under Donald Runnicles, Berliner Staatsoper with Daniel Barenboim, to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden under Sir Antonio Pappano, Opéra national de Paris with Philippe Jordan, The Metropolitan Opera under Kazushi Ono and to Florence’s Maggio Musicale alongside Zubin Mehta.

Uusitalo has since left the dramatic repertoire behind and now focuses on less-demanding operatic roles alongside an active and varied concert career. Recent concert appearances have included Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin under Marek Janowski and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra under Sakari Oramo, Oedipus Rex with Jukka-Pekka Saraste at the BBC Proms and Kullervo with L'Orchestre de Paris and Paavo Järvi. 

Other concert outings include Pulcinella with the San Francisco Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas, Zemlinsky’s Lyrische Sinfonie with the Philharmonia Orchestra under Esa-Pekka Salonen and Britten’s War Requiem with the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra under Lan Shui.

Lessons for individual students are 45 minutes and the audience is welcome to enter the hall as the students change, so please don’t enter the class in the middle of tuition. More detailed teaching schedules can be found at each teaching venue’s door.
