Brett Peart is a baritone born and raised in Perth. Brett has a diverse background in performance training spanning contemporary music performance and industry, music theatre performance and classical performance. Brett holds a Bachelor of Music, majoring in classical vocal performance from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, learning with Michael Lewis. In his first year, he performed in the chorus and as a quartet soloist in WAAPA’s Dido and Aeneas. Subsequent years have seen Brett portray various roles in WAAPA productions. The drunken and raucous dress-donning pirate in the devised cabaret Cabaret Carnivale (2017), the furiously frustrated Impresario in Mozart’s Der Schauspieldirektor, (2017) the enigmatic Director in Poulenc’s Les Mamelles de Tirésias (2017) and the browbeaten father of Cinderella, Pandolfe in Massenet’s Cendrillon (2018). This year Brett played the role of Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, directed by Rachel McDonald. Throughout his time at WAAPA, Brett has had the opportunity to perform in masterclasses for Mary King, Lynne Dawson, Gregory Yurisich and Teddy Tahu Rhodes. He also had the exceptional pleasure of performing as a soloist for Richard Bonynge AC, CBE at WAAPA’s gala for the maestro himself last year. Brett just returned from Brisbane having performed in Puccini’s Il Trittico directed by Peter Coleman-Wright OA and Cheryl Barker OA and conducted by Richard Lewis at James Cuskelly’s Sound Thinking summer school.
