The Man from Go Compare - YouTube | Thespie

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. One morning in 2009, Wynne was rehearsing with David Alden at Grange Park Opera (Cunning Little Vixen) and he asked if he could be late as he was going to an audition. Go Compare had intended to book an actor and superimpose Wynne’s voice, but Wynne convinced them that he could do both. Born in Carmarthen, Wales, Wynne studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and National Opera Studio. As an opera singer he has appeared at the Metropolitan Opera New York, Paris Opera, Covent Garden where engagements included Vakula The Tsarina’s Slippers, Mayor Anna Nicole and Scaramuccio Ariadne auf Naxos. As a principal tenor with Welsh National Opera, his roles included Duca Rigoletto, Rodolfo Bohème, Alfredo Traviata, and Tamino Magic Flute.
