Raymond Ellis Suggest updates


Raymond Ellis spent the years 1922-25 with the British National Opera Company, starting probably in the chorus, but with short solo parts, before progressing.  He appears to have had particular success as Papageno.

One oddity is that he is occasionally cast in tenor roles (eg Pedrillo,  Phoebus) which must have required transposition of the higher-lying phrases.
