His debut album A Song in My Heart went to the Number 1 in the classical charts. He is a regular presenter on BBC Radio Wales and Classic FM and presented a BBC2 TV programme on the National Eisteddfod.

Most recently he sang the role of PIANGI in the 25 year anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera, which was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall to cinemas worldwide and has been released on DVD.

Wynne Evans’ operatic appearances have taken him to major opera houses in the UK and abroad. He regularly performs at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden where most recent and future engagements include VAKULA The Tsarina’s Slippers, MAYOR Anna Nicole and SCARAMUCCIO Ariadne auf Naxos.

Gio Returns

Yes, the main man is back Gio Compario is back singing about the virtues of GoCompare.com. Wynne has played the role since 2009 and is delighted to be back in the tache, “It was always the plan to bring Gio back and now he’s here, and he’s sining again”.

“it’s been a real honour and privilege to be reunited with the original creative team, Chris and Sian Wilkins, they devised the character and when I heard that they were getting the old team together, then it was something that I was thrilled to be involved with”

“working with GoCompare.com has always been a massive honour and it’s wonderful to be back on your screens singing”
