Teddy Tahu Rhodes

Winner of the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA) 2004 award for Best Classical Album.

Hailed as the greatest classical voice to come from New Zealand since Kiri Te Kanawa, this incredible voice has to be heard to be believed. On his new album Teddy brings you his personal selection of opera arias and folk songs, including ones from his homeland.

Teddy is already the darling of Opera Australia, Houston Grand Opera, Washington Opera, Cincinnati Opera and Welsh National Opera - this is a voice set to conquer the operatic world.

Featuring favourites by Puccini, Gounod, Bizet, Wagner, Grainger and others, Teddy Tahu Rhodes - The Voice also includes a special feature: the Pearlfishers' Duet with David Hobson.
