LEVI HERNANDEZ

BARITONE

BIOGRAPHY

With a velvety tone and a stage presence which exudes confidence and charm, baritone Levi Hernandez is gaining momentum as a sought-after artist on the operatic stage. Mark Thomson Ketterson of Opera News declared of his principal debut with Lyric Opera of Chicago as Dandini in La Cenerentola, “Young baritone Levi Hernandez’s intelligent Dandini displayed a most impressive knack for subtle text-painting within a pristinely negotiated coloratura line…” The El Paso native has joined the rosters of leading opera companies including the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, and Houston Grand Opera where he debuted as Sharpless in Madama Butterfly opposite Ana Maria Martinez and Joseph Calleja.

In the 2021-2022 season, Mr. Hernandez returns to Lyric Opera of Chicago as Alvaro in Florencia en el Amazones, reprises his Gianni Schicchi with Tulsa Opera, debuts with Hawaii Opera Theater as Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, returns to Intermountain Opera Bozeman for his role debut as Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, and performs Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer with Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra.
