Matthew Tomko


Matthew began his singing career as a student at the Conservatoire of Music in Bratislava, Slovakia with teacher Frantisek Malatinec (trained by Anna Hrusovska-Prosencova who was also a teacher of a soprano Lucia Popp). Shortly after graduating from his 6-year studies Matthew quickly gained recognition as an artist of exceptional expressivity in both operatic and concert field.

2006-2011 Matthew was a principal soloist at the National Opera House in Kosice, Slovakia where he sang the roles such as Sarastro in The Magic Flute, Prince Gremin in Eugene Onegin, Captain Zuniga in Carmen, Masetto in Don Giovanni and many others. Matthew also regularly performed with the Kosice's National Opera House in Fertorakos (Kroisbach) Cave Theater in Hungary, including some world premieres of new operas.

Between 2011 and 2016 Matthew toured with Co-Opera Co., Chelmsford Opera, HeadFirst Production, Dulwich Opera, Commedia Opera and English Touring Opera in the UK singing the roles of Sarastro and Speaker in the Magic Flute, Commendatore in Don Giovanni, Colline in La boheme and covered Seneca in The Coronation of Poppea and Orestes in Jason. In 2015 Matthew sang the role of Colline in Celebrate Voice's production of La boheme at the Festival of Singing in Salisbury, where he returned with Tosca's Angelotti in October 2016.

Matthew could also be seen as Sparafucile in Opera Project's Rigoletto and as Angelotti in Arcola Theater's Tosca during the Grimeborn Festival in July 2016 in London.

In 2014 Matthew graduated with the Graduate Diploma in Vocal Performance at the Royal College of Music in London.
