Christian Bowers

baritone

American baritone Christian Bowers, hailed by Opera News for his "warm, well-knit baritone", and by BroadwayWorld.com for his "strong, clear voice", is quickly making a name for himself at home and abroad as a leading interpreter of the baritone repertoire. Mostly recently, Mr. Bowers made his role debut as the title character in Don Giovanni at Teatru Manoel in Malta. March 2019 performances as Guglielmo in Così fan tutte saw the completion of a Mozart/DaPonte collaboration with Teatru Manoel. Other engagements for 2018-2019 included a return to Washington National Opera as Ponchel in Silent Night, Vicomte de Valmont in Quartett with Theater Dortmund, and Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor with the Festival Lyrique-en-mer. Bowers' 2019-2020 season includes his Arizona Opera debut as Lassiter in Riders of the Purple Sage, and Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro with Maryland Lyric Opera.

 

Mr. Bowers’ diverse repertory spans from concert to stage and from the Bel Canto classics to new works. A busy 2017-2018 season saw Mr. Bowers returning to favorite roles such as Escamillo in Carmen (Utah Opera), Maximilian in Candide (Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse and Opéra National de Bordeaux), Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro (Pittsburgh Opera and Teatru Manoel in Malta), and The Pilot in The Little Prince (Washington National Opera & Glimmerglass Festival). He added the role of Emile de Becque in South Pacific (Annapolis Opera) and performed Duruflé's Requiem with the National Symphony Orchestra. In addition, he sang Fiorello in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Washington National Opera and was asked to jump in last minute as Maximilian in Candide with the company.
