About

Anando
Mukerjee

A native of India, Anando received degrees in Natural Sciences from both Delhi and Cambridge Universities. He pursued his vocal studies with some distinguished teachers, including Kenneth Woollam, Richard Nunn, Enrico Fissore, Ian Comboy, Glyn Paul and Nicolai Gedda.

Gedda’s last pupil

I have been working with Anando Mukerjee on his singing for a few years now. I must say it has been a wonderful experience!

Not only is Anando endowed with a lyric tenor, a lovely timbre and a fine sound in all registers, solid knowledge of several languages — but furthermore he has a quality — he is an intelligent human being! Anando would be a great asset to any opera theatre or concert hall in the world and I wish from all my heart luck and big success in his ensuing career.

Nicolai Gedda

Anando Mukerjee was a sexy, sinister Duke. One could almost hear the sound of corsets hitting the floor as he groped every nubile chick in his court. His voice has a beautiful resonance (...) and has all the charisma needed for this role Rosie Johnston, Opera Now

Internationally acclaimed opera singers to perform at Cadhay

Internationally acclaimed opera singers Anando Mukerjee and Justine Viani will be performing at the black tie event, kindly hosted by Rupert Thistlethwayte and Caroline Prior who are raising funds for Hospiscare.

Interview with Anando Mukerjee

The Western music scene in India has changed dramatically since when I began. Social networking and the effect of economic liberalisation has had a profound effect on every section of society. A new generation of Indians have emerged who’ve been educated abroad in leading conservatoires and schools and have returned to India to perform. This is a great deal to be thankful for.

Anando Mukerjee: Put opera on the social media

My scientific education gave me a great sense of precision and helped me to analyse music. I am at heart an instinctual musician and a very passionate person. However, as I started learning more difficult music, I realized that you also require a lot of intelligence.
