Luke Noftall

Canadian baritone Luke Noftall is a multi-talented performer who is currently in his fourth year of studies at the University of Toronto under the tutelage of Professor Lorna MacDonald, who holds the Lois Marshall Chair in Voice Studies. He is currently perusing his Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance, and is also part of the University of Toronto’s Opera Undergraduate Program. Since coming to Toronto, Luke has been part of a number of very exciting performances and competitions, including: placing first at the NATS Ontario Vocal Showcase in 2017, being selected to sing in the University of Toronto’s first ever Vocalini Concert for Outstanding Undergraduate Singers in 2018, and performing the roles of both Papageno and Monostatos in a production of Die Zauberflöte at the Arts & Letters Club.

This past summer, Luke took part in both Opera NUOVA’s 4-Week Apprentice Program in Edmonton, as well as the Halifax Summer Opera Festival. In Edmonton, Luke performed in Purcell’s Fairy Queen, and also portrayed Benedick, the leading role in the newly workshopped opera by James Garner and Patrick Hansen: Much Ado! which is set for its world premiere in 2021 by Opera McGill. In Halifax, Luke portrayed the role of Papageno in HSOF’s production of Die Zauberflöte, and was described as a ‘Charming Baritone’ (The Coast).

This year, Luke is excited to be a Sidgwick Scholar with the prestigious Orpheus choir of Toronto, and to also be completing his Bachelor of Music degree at The University of Toronto. Upon completion, Luke will be applying to various Masters of Opera programs across Canada and the United States.
