Joshua Knight, Baritenor
Joshua is featured as “Pooh-Bah” in this year's production of The Mikado.
Joshua is currently in his Third Year of a Bachelor of Music Performance with a major in Historical Voice. He studies with Koen Van Stade at the Sydney Conservatorium. With a passion for researching and understanding historical approaches to singing, he has a love and enjoyment for the polyphony of the Renaissance, as well as Baroque music. His two favourite composers are Palestrina and J.S. Bach.
He has been a Choral Scholar at Christ Church St Lawrence Anglican Church since 2017, sings as a guest chorister with St Marys Singers, performed for Distant Worlds: Music From FINAL FANTASY at the Sydney ICC in 2017 and sings with the Sydney Conservatorium Chamber Choir. He was also in the Opera Chorus for Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s Opera ‘L’enfant et les sortilèges’ in 2019.
Joshua has a deep love for the comedy and satire of Gilbert and Sullivan and is happy to be returning to the company to perform the role of Pooh-Bah. This will be Joshua’s third production with Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Sydney, having appeared in the chorus in their 2016 Production of ‘Patience’, and performing the role of Samuel for their 2017 production of Pirates of Penzance’.

The Savoy Arts Company Incorporated has been producing shows since 1985, specialising in the operettas of William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. To better reflect its primary artistic objective, commencing from 2014, the company will be performing as Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney. Our performing group has provided excellent training in all aspects of stagecraft for performers who have made a career in opera and musical theatre. The Ensemble style of our productions not only provides the chorus with experience in singing with an orchestra, but also provides ample opportunity to learn and develop skills in characterisation and stagecraft.
