Best Male Opera Singers


The Top Ten

1 Jonathan Antoine Jonathan Antoine Jonathan Antoine is a classically trained English tenor. He rose to fame after appearing on the sixth series of Britain's Got Talent in 2012 as one half of the classical duo Jonathan and Charlotte.

This guy doesn't sing opera! Every other male TRUE OPERA singer on this poll is far and away better than this guy will ever be.

Voting this guy to the top of the poll doesn't make him the best singer.

This is a new Young British Tenor who's outstanding voice has already won him worldwide fame - he has a Golden Velvety Creamy tone unlike any other tenor out there and the Power Passion & Joy he brings to his music is unbelievable- although still very young he has been tipped to be up there with the Greats and THE tenor of the 2st Century

There are no words really to describe this amazing talent

2 Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti, Cavaliere di Gran Croce was an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time.

Of course Luciano Pavarotti is the top male opera singer. No other male opera singer, dead or alive, young or old, can compare with him. He leaves them all behind the starting blocks.

There will never ever be another male singer as great as Luciano Pavarotti.

Luciano Pavarotti is the absolute BEST OF THE BEST & always will be.

Luciano Pavarotti is the name one automatically thinks of when you hear the words "male opera singer". He is absolutely the best in the business.

3 Enrico Caruso Enrico Caruso

The world of music is diminished for not having modern recordings of his voice. Certainly the equal of the great Pavarotti,and even possibly superior. We will never know.

4 Placido Domingo Placido Domingo
5 Boris Christoff Boris Christoff Boris Christoff was a Bulgarian opera singer, widely considered to have been one of the greatest basses of the 20th century.
6 Jose Carreras Jose Carreras Josep Maria Carreras i Coll, better known as José Carreras, is a Spanish tenor from Catalonia who is particularly known for his performances in the operas of Verdi and Puccini.

The most beautiful voice in the world. Still fantastic at 70.

Very smooth voice and fantastic tenor!

7 Dimash Kudaibergen Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergen (Commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of a talent show "Singer 2017" in China where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide more.

Dimash has the widest range of voice from Baritone to soprano.


8 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli, OMRI, OMDSM is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

In my opinion one of the most inspiring voices I have ever heard. His ability to perform across a number of genres is fascinating and his ability to capture the attention of even the youngest listener is amazing.

9 Josh Groban Josh Groban

Josh Groban is an amazing singer, but he is NOT an opera singer. Neither are several other names on this list, though all-time greats like Pavarotti, Domingo, and Caruso definitely are. Possibly re-title the poll to say "Singers with operatic-style voices", or "Classical singers", something like that.

Josh Groban has an amazing voice andd his songs have helped me through many of bad days.

10 Dmitri Hvorostovsky

A greatly trained classical voice. I love his style!

Best baritone ever.

Ha sang by soul!
