Mozart Rules!

Two years ago, I debuted at Ravinia Festival singing Don Curzio in Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, opposite Nathan Gunn and Ailyn Perez as Conte and Contessa, respectively. This year, I get to sing in not just one but TWO Mozart operas: Magic Flute and Idomeneo. I am normally cast as Monostatos in Magic Flute, but since I was initially contracted to sing Arbace in Idomeneo, I was later added to Magic Flute singing a double-duty role of First Priest and First Armoured Man. I sang the First Priest during my season debut at Lyric Opera of Chicago in 2005, so singing the First Armoured Man was a challenge, but a very exciting one, as I get to showcase my vocal range and capability outside of the character tenor realm. In addition, I get the opportunity to sing again with Ailyn (as Pamina) and Nathan (as Papageno). In Idomeneo, I get to sing with the incomparable Richard Croft, as well as a trio of amazing women, Ruxandra Donose, Susanna Phillips and Tamara Wilson. Magic Flute is full of great singing and sense of humor. Idomeneo is a dramatic masterpiece that brings out the singers, the chorus, and even the orchestra, EQUALLY. Mozart did right with his first serious opera. I am very lucky and blessed to have worked with such great and reliable singers/colleagues. We made each other look AND sound good on stage. I can’t wait to return to Ravinia. It’s like a “mini-LYRIC”.
