WYNNE EVANS is regularly singing to millions for the TV advertising campaign that has made him a household name as the spoof opera star Gio Compario.

He is a regular presenter on BBC Radio Wales and has also presented on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM, alongside starring in his very own TV series on BBC One Wales, ‘Wynne At the Deep End’. 

He was honoured by the National Eisteddfod with the title of Gorsedd of the Bards, where he presented the BBC2 TV programme, and most recently performed for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at their Welsh home.

Born in South West Wales, Wynne studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the National Opera Studio in London. 

Throughout his career, Wynne has worked at The Royal Opera House, Paris Opera De Lyon and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. He sang the role of PIANGI in the 25-year anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera, which was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall to cinemas worldwide and has been released on DVD.

Wynne Evans’ operatic appearances have taken him to major opera houses in the UK and abroad. He regularly performs at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden where most recent and future engagements include VAKULA The Tsarina’s Slippers, MAYOR Anna Nicole and SCARAMUCCIO Ariadne auf Naxos.

As a principal tenor with Welsh National Opera, his many roles included DUCA Rigoletto, RODOLFO La Bohème, ALFREDO La Traviata, and TAMINO The Magic Flute. He has appeared throughout the UK, with companies such as Opera North, English National Opera, Scottish Opera and Grange Park Opera, and has recorded several operas including Salome, Ariadne Auf Naxos and Les Martyrs.

As a lifelong supporter of Tottenham Hotspur, Wynne was delighted to perform at the team's final game at White Hart Lane and reprised the song at the opening of the new stadium to 62,000 fans in 2019.

He is also a Trustee of Grange Park Opera, and Patron of Ty Cymorth and Tenovus Cancer Care.
