About Gerald Finley:

Gerald Hunter Finley, OC, CBE (born January 30, 1960) is a Canadian baritone opera singer.

He was born in Montreal and received his musical education in St. Matthew's Anglican Church, Ottawa, the University of Ottawa, King's College, Cambridge and the Royal College of Music in London, before securing a place at the prestigious National Opera Studio. The sometime organist of Westminster Abbey, the Australian-born Sir William McKie, who lived during his last years in Ottawa and who was Finley's great-uncle, encouraged him in his early musical activities.

He is particularly renowned for his interpretations of Mozart roles such as Guglielmo, Papageno, Figaro, the Count and Don Giovanni. He made his New York City debut at the Metropolitan Opera on January 24, 1998 in the role of Papageno in Die Zauberflöte. He has subsequently performed the title role of Don Giovanni, Marcello in Puccini's La bohème, and the title role of Rossini's Guillaume Tell at the Metropolitan Opera.

In addition to his success with Mozart, Finley has been active in contemporary opera. He has created a number of roles including J. Robert Oppenheimer in the world premiere of John Adams' opera Doctor Atomic at the San Francisco Opera on October 1, 2005. This opera had its Metropolitan Opera premiere with Finley in the Oppenheimer role on October 13, 2008 and was broadcast as part of the Met's Live in HD broadcast series on November 8, 2008. Other roles he has originated include Harry Heegan in The Silver Tassie by Mark-Anthony Turnage at the English National Opera and the title role in Fantastic Mr. Fox by Tobias Picker at the Los Angeles Opera.
