The young bass of great talent Maxime Martin is the Perfect Mephisto of Faust by Gounod, as much by his voice as by his playing.
Maxime Martin will be Don Magnifico in La Cenerentola by Rossini, under the direction of Maestro Boris Brott at the Brott Music Festival in July 2022.
Originally from Montreal, bass Maxime Martin completed his vocal studies at McGill University. He was recently heard in the roles of Don Magnifico (La Cenerentola) with Opera in the Park and Don Giovanni with 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 won first place in his category.
