Count Almaviva - Opera Holland Park - Le nozze di Figaro   -

Jacob Phillip's lusty, admirably well-sung Count looked completely at home as the master of Agueas Frescas, even one outwitted by his servants.

Repertoire list

Recent roles include Count Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) and Zungia (Carmen) for Opera Holland Park, scenes from Le nozze di Figaro for The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (Linbury Theatre), Gianni Schicchi (title role) for Royal Academy Opera, Guglielmo (Cosi fan tutte) and Don Giovanni (title role) with the Covent Garden Chamber Orchestra.


Jacob is going into his final year on the Royal Academy Opera course under the guidance of Professor Mark Wildman and Ingrid Surgenor where he is generously supported by the Countess of Munster and Josephine Baker trust. He was the 2016 winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Society Bursary award.


Concert soloist highlights include Mozart’s Coronation Mass in Cadogan Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem in King’s College, Cambridge. 

Upcoming highlights include Belcore for West Green Opera (young artist), Nick Shadow for Royal Academy Opera's new production of The Rake's progress, directed by Frederic Wake Walker under the baton of Trevor Pinnock and Count Almaviva in Spring 2023. 


Jacob Phillips’ Schicchi was at the center of the show, and demonstrated impeccable technique alongside impressive dramatic range. He’s slick and oily, with the hint of the playboy, and does Buoso’s voice to hilarious pantomime effect. He felt ruthless enough to defraud the dead, and charming enough to plead extenuating circumstances in the coda, bust of Dante in hand – a sharply-drawn and impressively crafted portrait.
