Thomas Mole


British baritone Thomas Mole is currently in his first season of a Studio contract at Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper, where he sings Flemish Deputy Don Carlo, Jose La Fanciulla del West, Commandante Manon Lescaut, Adjudant War and Peace, Hunter Rusalka, and Mityukha Boris Godunov. Recent career highlights include his debut as Escamillo Carmen at Opera Holland Park, Faure’s Requiem which he sang on tour in Russia with MusicAeterna and Teodor Currentzis, and his appearance as Kuligin Kát’a Kabanová at Glyndebourne Festival following which he was awarded the John Christie Prize.


Winner of the prestigious 2021 Gold Medal, awarded by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Thomas graduated from the Opera Course at Guildhall School of Music & Drama where he gained BMus in Vocal Studies.  Tom’s roles at Guildhall include Gil Il segreto di Suzanna, Aeneas Dido and Aeneas, Sprecher Die Zauberflöte, Barone di Trombonok Il Viaggio a Rheims and Hotel Manager Powder Her Face, Snug A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Pluto Orpheus in the Underworld.

As Alidoro, Tom Mole unfurled a bass-baritone of unusual richness, presence and promise.

Opera Magazine, Yehuda Shapiro, November 2019

Tom Mole, the 22 year old bass baritone, gave us a remarkably fine and consistent account of a role which really requires two different singers. To say that he will find more solidity and depth as he gets older would be to carp – his trumpet sounded triumphally, the dead were raised incorruptible, and we were changed.
