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

The voice is a wonder, round and full, with most beautiful tones, and he seemed completely at home onstage (...) he held the audience's interest with his use of the language and his lively eye contact (...) his potential for the future is enormous Katie Barnes, Wagner Society Journal

In conversation with Anando Mukerjee

India boasts of several culturally rich music traditions and talented musicians. One of the rarest forms to be found in the country, Opera is gaining popularity and Anando Mukerjee is a pioneer in bringing Operatic music to us. He is India’s first male Tenor and is best known for a range of roles of some of opera’s most well-known characters, including Rodolfo, the Duke of Mantua, Pinkerton and Nemorino; and appeared at leading international venues including the Belgrade National Opera, Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall and the Kennedy Center. We caught up with Anando in Delhi and discussed his past present and future.
