Opera News has praised Corey Bix for his “clear sense of drama and self-possession, exhibiting sturdy, unwavering control, flinty resonance and confident high notes.” Mr. Bix is quickly becoming known for his stirring portrayals of dramatic tenor repertoire on both opera and concert stages across the globe. The 2021-22 season brings him to Folks Operetta as Francois in Korngold’s rarely performed Die Kathrin, to Nashville Opera as Loge in Das Rheingold, and to San Francisco to cover Florestan in Fidelio. Last season, he was featured in concert with Pittsburgh Festival Opera, made his role debut as Beadle Bamford with Des Moines Metro Opera, and was slated to appear as Scalia in Scalia/Ginsburg with Nashville Opera and as Bacchus in Ariadne auf Naxos with Arizona Opera (cancelled due to COVID-19).
Mr. Bix’s 2019-20 season featured his role debut as Canio in I Pagliacci with El Paso Opera. In the 2018-19 season, he made his role debut as Lohengrin with Opera Southwest, sang Judge Danforth in The Crucible with Opera Santa Barbara, the Kronprinz in Silent Night with Arizona Opera, covered the Hauptmann in Wozzeck at The Metropolitan Opera, sang the Hauptmann in Wozzeck and the Governor in Candide with Des Moines Metro Opera, and joined Opéra national de Paris for their production of Les Troyens.
