Chris Booth-Jones studied at the Royal Academy of Music and began his operatic career in 1970, singing with, among others, Welsh National Opera, Glyndebourne Festival and The Royal Opera House. Chris joined English National Opera in 1982, where he was Principal baritone for 18 years. It would be easier to list the baritone parts that Chris has not played than those he has. Performing has taken him to South America, the USA, Russia, Hong Kong and all around Europe. In recent years he has focused on recitals and recordings. Chris believes that at best, singing should be as natural as talking.
