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).
In the 2022-2023, Mr. Vickers sings Alfredo in La traviata with Opera Delaware/Opera Baltimore, Pollione in Norma with Opera Tampa, and returns to Lyric Opera of Chicago to cover the title role in Ernani. In the 2021-2022 season, he debuted with Lyric Opera of Chicago as Malcolm in Macbeth, sang Canio in Pagliacci with Opera in Williamsburg, returned to one of his signature roles, Rodolfo in La bohème, with Virginia Opera, sang Foresto in Attila with Sarasota Opera, and made 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).
