Denis Sedov - Russian opera singer (bass).
As a guest soloist he has appeared at the world's leading opera houses (Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Grand Opera, Covent Garden, theatres in San Francisco, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Tel Aviv, Japan and China.)
Denis Sedov is a well-known opera singer (bass-baritone), who has won the love of the public, due to his unique vocal qualities, strength of voice, artistry as well as a wide musical palette.
The repertoire of Denis Sedov, who sings in 8 languages, includes classical opera, folk songs, romances, bossa nova and samba.
Denis Sedov was born in Saint Petersburg. At the age of 6, after seeing a documentary about the school of singers at the chapel: 'Leningrad Nightingales', he said that is where he wanted to study. Eleven years later Denis graduated with honours from the Glinka Choral School. He graduated from the Glinka Choir School of the State Academic Capella, Choral conducting class. At the age of 17 he went to the conducting department of the Rubin Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem, but ... accidentally missed the exam because the information about the date of the competition was wrong. In order not to lose a whole year of studies Denis decided to enter the vocal department of the Academy (since childhood he had been singing in the choir, and by that time he had already started to sing solo, knew two arias with which he entered) with the hope to transfer to the conducting department in a year... But this was not to be. The young singer was noticed and he was immediately offered a job. Already at the age of 19 he had his first professional performance at the festival in Ludwigsburg (Germany), where Denis sang his concert of contemporary music with orchestra.
Denis is one of very few singers of non-American origin invited to participate in the prestigious Young Artist Development Program of E. Lindemann at the Metropolitan Opera (New York), where he studied for 2 years with such opera legends as Renata Scotto, Louis Quilico, Regine Crispin, Carlo Bergonzi. At 22, at the invitation of Gian Carlo Menotti himself (Italian composer, friend of Benjamin Britten), he went to perform at his first summer festival in Spoleto (Italy) and a year later recorded his first recording of Handel's Ariodante with Anne-Sophie von Otter on Deutsche Grammophon. At the age of 22, he also sang his debut role at the Metropolitan Opera in Umberto Giordano's opera Fedora, alongside Plácido Domingo and Mirella Freni.

One of the highlights of the singer's career was his performance at the opening ceremony of the 18th Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. The 24-year-old Sedov played Beethoven's Ninth Symphony to a crowd of one billion.

Sedov has performed more than 50 operatic roles and a 20-year solo career with sold-out concerts in over forty countries. He has appeared at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Grand Opera in Paris, the Royal Opera in London, Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and theatres in San Francisco, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Tel Aviv, Japan and China. And that's not the whole list. Denis Sedov has performed with nearly all major opera companies in the USA and Europe. He has sung with such stars as Placido Domingo, Yo-Yo Ma, Pierre Boulez, Riccardo Muti, Nikolai Giaurov, James Levine, Kurt Masur, Seiji Ozawa and Nani Bregvadze. The singer has collaborated with famous record labels such as Deutsche Grammophon, Telarc and Naxos.
