Dimitris Paksoglou was born in Athens, Greece. First he embarked on a career as an actor and studied at the National Superior School of Drama. As an actor he went on to appear in various Greek theatres, including the ancient theatre of Epidaurus, the Greek National Theatre and the Athens Megaron. He subsequently decided to make a career change and studied singing at the Athens National Conservatory under the guidance of the famous Baritone Kostas Paskalis and Marina Krilovici, graduating with distinction. He eventually moved to France and worked in several Opera Theatres. His success abroad leaded the Greek National Opera to offer him a contract as a principal tenor and he now continues to appear in leading roles with the company.
His repertory includes roles such as Radames (Stade De France), Gustavo III (Greek National Opera), Des Grieux (Greek National Opera), Don José (Theatre of Heredus Atticus, Greek Festival), Pinkerton (Greek National Opera), Alfredo (Athens Festival, Greek National Opera), Turiddu (Opera de Saint Etienne, Greek National Opera), Macduff (Greek National Opera), Creonte (Thessaloniki Opera House), Danilo (Greek National Opera), Araquil (Saint Etienne).
Conductors and directors he has cooperated regularly with include Errico Frezis, Loucas Karytinos, Alexandros Myrat, Gabriel Chmura, Juanjo Mena, Laurent Campellone, G. Del Monaco, D. Pountney, Myron Michailidis, Lorenzo Marianni, Philippe Forget and Stephen Langridge, among others.
2019 saw Dimitris’ debut as Adorno in Simone Boccanegra at the National Theatre in Athens and his first Pollione in Norma at the Opera house in Rijeka, as well as Cavaradossi in Tosca in the Swedish Malmö.
