American tenor Matthew Vickers has been praised for his “brilliant and golden voice” (Die Kleine Zeitung), his “burnished sound and confident acting” (National Post), and hailed as “a gutsy performer whose glowing tenor voice has interestingly dark, baritonal undertones” (Opera Now).
The 2021-2022 season brings Mr. Vickers’ debut with Lyric Opera of Chicago in their production of Macbeth. He also appears as Canio in Pagliacci with Opera in Williamsburg, returns to one of his signature roles, Rodolfo in La bohème, with Virginia Opera, sings Foresto in Attila with Sarasota Opera, and makes his role and company debut at Baltimore Concert Opera as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur. The 2019-2020 season featured many exciting engagements such as Cavaradossi in Tosca with Virginia Opera, Alfredo in La traviata with Dayton Opera, Rodolfo in La bohème with Dayton Opera, Principe Dimitri in Risurrezione with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Carmel Symphony.
Mr. Vickers was also slated to appear as Sam in Susannah with Annapolis Opera, the Duke in Rigoletto with Virginia Opera, and Calaf in Turandot with the Evansville Philharmonic, (canceled due to COVID-19). In the 2018-2019 season, Mr. Vickers performed the role of Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Opera Memphis, was in concert with Sarasota Opera, debuted with the Macerata Festival as Don José in Carmen, and sang Canio in Pagliacci with the Savannah Music Festival.
