Talented young bass Maxime Martin is the perfect Mephisto of Gounod’s Faust, both for his voice and for his acting.

Originally from Montreal, bass Maxime Martin completed his studies in vocal art at McGill University. He has recently appeared in the roles of Don Magnifico (La Cenerentola) with Opera in the Park and Don Giovanni with the Prague Summer Nights Opera Festival.

In recent years he has also performed several other roles, including Publio (La Clemenza di Tito), Bartolo (Le Nozze di Figaro), Bartolo (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) and Marchese / Dottore (La Traviata).

Recipient of the Kenneth Woodman Scholarship from McGill University, he also distinguished himself in the final of the Canadian Music Competition in 2018, where he took first place in his category.
