Benjamin has established himself as one of Australia’s finest character actors in the world of opera.

He studied at the Elder Conservatorium of Music and the Australian Opera Studio, Perth. He was most recently seen as Mr Snow in State Opera of South Australia’s Carousel as well as Njegus in The Merry Widow for Opera Australia, for which he received a Green Room Award nomination, as well as a sold out season of Kurt Weill’s Sins & Mahagonny at the Old Fitz.

Performing the role of L’Incredibile alongside Jonas Kaufman in Andrea Chenier is a particular career highlight. Other Opera Australia roles include Don Basilio – The Marriage of Figaro, Pang – Turandot, Goro – Madame Butterfly and Monostatos – The Magic Flute.

Benjamin recently represented Opera Australia as a principal artist in the Opera Up Late series for World Pride at the Sydney Opera House.

Music theatre credits include Jamie/Freddy Eyensford Hill – My Fair Lady, starring Richard E Grant, Mr Erlanson – A Little Night Music (Opera Australia) Harry the Horse – Guys and Dolls & Maltby and Shire’s Take Flight (Adelaide Cabaret Festival)
