Canadian triple threat Spencer Britten feels at home in both the Operatic and Musical Theatre repertoire. His recent projects have allowed him to enjoy the utilization of his extensive dance and opera training. Recently, Spencer has been a Young Artists at The Glimmerglass Festival and L'Atelier Lyrique de l'Opéra de Montréal. 

 

His 2019-2020 season, started with performing Triquet in Eugene Onegin at Opéra de Montréal where he was praised for his "clear and powerful voice" (Bachtrack) and his ability to portray "a mannered French aristocrat, hilarious stereotype whom [Spencer] embodied with genius." "The scene was tasty, and this young man is a born actor." (Ludwig Van Montreal.) Spencer then competed in the final rounds of the Neue Stimmen International Voice Competition in Gütersloh, Germany. At the end of 2019 he reprised his role as Léon in The Ghosts of Versailles at Château de Versailles Spectacles (The Royal Opera of Versailles.)

Spencer has been a winner/recipient  of The Jacqueline Desmarais Foundation For Young Canadian Opera Singers, The Vancouver Opera Guild Career Development Grant, The Vancouver Opera Chorus Endowment Career Development Grant, The Joseph and Melitta Kandler Scholarship for the Advanced Music Study, and The Barbara Eves-Motomochi Memorial Fund. He thanks the generous opera communities of Vancouver and Montreal for their constant support.
