Pedro Beriso

Born in Spain in 1987, Pedro Beriso trained in Barcelona’s ESMuC as a pianist, a singer and a conductor (summa cum laude). He specialized in operatic repertoire and lyric diction in the National Opera Studio in London, with scholarships from the Amar-Franses & Foster-Jenkins Foundation and Royal Opera House-Covent Garden, and was part of the International Opera Studio in Opernhaus Zürich during the seasons 14/15/16. He has collaborated on several occasions with the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona and he is a recurring guest in the Glyndebourne Opera Festival in the United Kingdom, as a pianist and vocal coach.

With more than 50 opera titles in his repertoire, he has had the chance to know and work closely with conductors such as Richard Bonynge, Philippe Herreweghe, Trevor Pinnock, Enrique Mazzola, Fabio Luisi, Raphaël Pichon and Robin Ticciati. He has accompanied masterclasses and voice lessons by Carlos Chausson, Neil Shicoff, Angelika Kirschlager, Ann Murray, Brigitte Fassbaender and Kiri te Kanawa.

In 2016 he became a permanent member of the music staff team of Opera Ballet Vlaanderen in Antwerp and Ghent as a pianist, where he has also debuted as a conductor in Così fan tutte and Mozart Concert Arias, both creations of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.
Pedro is also a teacher and vocal coach in the International Opera Academy in Ghent and in the International Opera Studio of Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam.

In 2022 Pedro teamed up with the French soprano star Julie Fuchs as musical advisor for her recently released album Amadè (Sony Music). In this occasion he selected the repertoire, edited and arranged several of Mozart’s unknown pieces.

He is currently preparing his debut for the Salzburger Festspiele 2023, where he will be the principal vocal coach and continuo player in a new production of Le Nozze di Figaro, with the Wiener Philharmoniker and maestro Raphaël Pichon.

In March 2023 he will conduct his own arrangements for the creation Ändere die Welt, with music inspired by social revolutions, for the Opera Forward Festival of Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam.
