In Review: Carico and Krause in "The Snow Queen" at the Concertgebow Amsterdam
Hailed by Opera News as “powerful in both voice and bearing” and particularly noted for his commanding stage presence and expressive vocalism, American bass-baritone Seth Carico is distinguishing himself at home and internationally. Opera Today praised “the dynamic presence of Carico, whose ringing baritone gave much pleasure.” He effortlessly capitalizes on his dramatic training, bringing a unique sensitivity to operatic characters at disparate ends of the theatrical spectrum.
The 2022-2023 season sees Carico making his role debut as Wotan in Die Walküre at Konzert Theater Bern, Pistola in Falstaff with Komishe Oper Berlin, and the title role in Don Giovanni at Minnesota Opera. In the 2021-2022 season, he returned to Deutsche Oper Berlin for Turnage’s Greek,
made his Dallas Opera debut as the Minskman in Flight, joined the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra Amsterdam as Astradamors in Le grand macabre and Snow Queen/ Reindeer/ Clock in The Snow Queen and made his house and role debut as Don Giovanni with Dutch National Opera. Carico’s 2020-2021 season included several important debuts, including Orest in Elektra with Stadttheater Klagenfurt, Fortnum Roscoe/Johnson Evesham in the world premiere of Dai Fujikura’s A Dream of Armageddon with New National Theatre Tokyo, and Tonio in Pagliacci with Aalto-Musiktheater Essen.
