Hailed by The New York Times as “a bass with an attitude and the goods to back it up,” bass Matt Boehler has received critical acclaim for both his dramatic skill and his vocal prowess. Boehler’s calendar over the past several years has included engagements at some of classical music’s most prestigious venues. He has sung at The Metropolitan Opera in both Iolanta and The Nose, Théâtre Royal de La Monnaie in Daphne, and Canadian Opera Company in The Magic Flute. During the 2021-2022 season, Mr. Boehler makes his Florida Grand Opera debut in Rigoletto and returns to Des Moines Metro Opera in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. A widely recognized collaborator in contemporary opera, this season Mr. Boehler also makes his Santa Fe Opera debut in the world premiere of The Lord of Cries (Corigliano/Adamo) and returns to Chicago Opera Theater for Becoming Santa Claus (Adamo). Elsewhere, he has premiered the roles of Director in Aquanetta (Gordon/Artman) with Prototype Festival, Uncle in Elizabeth Cree (Puts/Campbell) with Opera Philadelphia, and has appeared as Mr. Mister in The Cradle Will Rock with Opera Saratoga.
