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 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

Jonathan is unique in every way. His sound is rich and powerful,full of emotion! People are drawn to him not only because of his amazing voice but because he is an amazing and courageous person. Although he possesses this phenominal talent he is humble, gentle and compassionate. He brings all of these things into his performances which makes the listener feel connected to him in a way that is deeper and more intimate. Jonathan shares himself in his song and that sets him apart from the other performers of his time. His two solo Albums Tenore & Believe are my constant companions.

Jonathan will be the tenor that everyone remembers. Not only does he have an amazing voice but he is a charming and loveable man.

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.

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.

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

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

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 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.
5 Placido Domingo Placido Domingo
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.

7 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.
8 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.
