The Welsh tenor is now known as ‘Gio Compario’ - frontman for the comparison site. Wynne’s view is simple: “there’s no rule book which says opera can’t be fun.” He’s performed at major opera houses from Covent Garden and Lyons to Cardiff, and at dozens of rugby internationals.
A classically trained tenor, Wynne is now best known as Gio Compario from the Go Compare website adverts.
Wynne is a regular at the English and Welsh National Opera and has sung as a principal with most of the major opera houses and orchestras, including Covent Garden and the Royal Opera House. His debut album, A Song In My Heart, went straight to number one in the classical charts.
In 2004 Wynne responded to the New Zealand rugby team’s Haka with Bread of Heaven, and has since sung at over 20 Welsh rugby international games.
In addition to his vocal talents, Wynne also speaks entertainingly about his time in the world of opera and his life as one of the country’s most frequently heard (although not always appreciated) singers.
