American tenor Noah Stewart made his Royal Opera debut in 2012 as Hassan (Miss Fortune). In the 2014/15 Season he returns to sing Lieutenant F.B. Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly) for The Royal Opera.

Stewart grew up in Harlem, New York, and discovered opera as a teenager through seeing a video of Leontyne Price performing. He trained at LaGuardia Arts, the Juilliard School and on the San Francisco Opera Merola Young Artists Program and made his professional debut with San Francisco Opera as Macduff (Macbeth). He has since performed widely in the USA and the UK, with engagements including Don José (Carmen) for Chicago Opera Theater, Rodolfo (La bohème) for Wexford Opera Festival and in Detroit, Milwaukee and New Orleans, Gounod’s Faust in Atlanta, Nadir (Les Pêcheurs de perles) in Detroit, Roméo in Knoxville, Narraboth (Salome) in Phoenix and Tucson, Augustus Gloop in the world premiere of Ash’s The Golden Ticket for Wexford Opera Festival, Don José in the Royal Albert Hall and Pinkerton for Opera North.

Stewart is a Decca recording artist and in 2012 topped the UK Classical Album Chart with his debut solo album Noah.
