Paul Arden-Griffith was born in Stockport, Cheshire and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music where he gained graduate diplomas in singing and pianoforte and won the Gwilym Gwallchmai Jones Scholarship for singing.
He also trained as a dancer, and his critically acclaimed London debut at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre presented him in the acrobatic acting role of Puck in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the singing role of Sellem in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress in the same season.
This rare combination of talents has blossomed into a career which embraces every aspect of music-theatre. In opera, operetta and musicals Paul has sung more than fifty principal tenor roles with many of Britain’s major companies including English National Opera and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden, and in arts festivals throughout Europe. He has sailed around the world four times on board P&O’s luxury cruise liners, starring in cabaret, classical concerts and production shows, many of which he directs and choreographs, and on the international concert platform Paul has enjoyed considerable acclaim for solo concerts in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and London.
