Denis Milo was born in Moscow and, at the age of 3, moved to Germany with his parents.
He had his first flute lessons at the age of 8 and received his first vocal training by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Thomas Quasthoff in Berlin. At the age of 12 he made his first on-stage-experiences at a music theatre production of “Emil and the Detectives”. This public appearance enabled him to perform in large parts of Europe, North America and Japan. Prior to his vocal studies, he studied philosophy at St.Petersburg State University.
He is currently studying at the Berlin University of Arts under the guidance of Enrico Facini, where he already could gain further stage experience, among others as Don Giovanni in Mozart’s “Don Giovanni”, as Guglielmo in “Cosi fan tutte” and as Dottore Malatesta in “Don Pasquale”. In early 2016, he debuted as Nardo in “La finta giardiniera” under the direction of Christoph Hagel together with the Berlin Symphony Orchestra.
Denis Milo also performs on theatre stages. At the Berlin Academy of Dramatic Arts “Ernst Busch”, Denis Milo played the role of Claudio in Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure”. Besides opera singing, the baritone focuses on concert specialised studies and sings songs and oratorios.
In the field of concert specialised studies, he acquired a versatile and extensive repertoire in roles including numerous Bach cantatas, Verdi’s Requiem, Orff’s Carmina Burana and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.
