anthony leigh dunstan (AUS/NL)

Anthony’s vibrant paramusical works are laden with extremes of contrast that embark on an odyssey of temporal sounds and provocative themes. His work is performed worldwide and spans across diverse settings from solo to opera/music theatre to electronic compositions.

He studied with Mary Finsterer, Michael Smetanin, Richard Ayres and Willem Jeths at Sydney and Amsterdam Conservatoriums respectively. He received various scholarships and bursaries including Dame Joan Irvine Scholarship and the Sydney University Postgraduate Award. He has also studied alongside experts in the field of opera such as Javier López Piñón, Anthony Heidweiller and leading operatic composers Peter Eötvös and Pascal Dusapin.
