More about me:
I was born in a car on a busy street in Bombay. Years later in 2011, when I was working as a software engineer, soprano Patricia Rozario OBE ‘discovered’ my potential to sing and I moved to England to train under her at the Royal College of Music. I later trained with Donald Maxwell and Adrian Thompson at the David Seligman Opera School. I have since sung with Scottish Opera and will soon be singing a role at Welsh National Opera.

“Oscar Castellino’s fervent James Meredith … was a highlight” – The Times UK
UK-based, Indian Baritone Oscar Castellino was one of the singers at Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the river Thames in 2012. He composed the planet Mars anthem “Rise to Mars” that has been adopted by the International Mars Society as they push for the human exploration of Mars. He completed a first class Bachelors in Music at the Royal College of Music studying with Patricia Rozario and a first class Physics degree in Mumbai. He is supported by the Clive and Sylvia Richards Scholarship, the Welsh National Opera Christopher Ball Award and the Rajeshwari Scholarship at the Royal Welsh College’s Opera Course. He has featured in two Masterclasses at the prestigious BBC Cardiff Singer of the World. Future engagements include singing with Scottish Opera on their Pop-Up Opera Roadshow from May to August.
