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 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. His 2019-2020 season sees a return to Virginia Opera as Cavaradossi in Tosca, Rodolfo in La bohème with Dayton Opera, Principe Dimitri in Risurrezione with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Carmel Symphony, Sam in Susannah with Annapolis Opera, and Calaf in Turandot with the Evansville Philharmonic.
 

The 2017-18 season included his debut as Arnold in Guillaume Tell with Opera Southwest as well as returns to Opera Western Reserve as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor, Sarasota Opera as Des Grieux in Manon Lescaut, Opera Roanoke as Rodolfo in La bohème, and Opera Delaware as Luigi in Il tabarro. In the 2016-2017 season, Mr. Vickers performed the role of Don José in Carmen with Opera Western Reserve, covered Canio in Pagliacci with Virginia Opera, sang Avito in Montemezzi's L'amore dei tre re with Sarasota Opera, Sam in Carlisle Floyd's Susannah with Opera Roanoke, Luigi in Il tabarro with the Opera Company of Middlebury, and the Duke in Verdi's Rigoletto with Ashlawn Opera. In the 2015-2016 season, he made his Sarasota Opera debut as Arrigo in Verdi’s La battaglia di Legnano, stepping in for an ailing colleague; took part in the east coast premiere of Faccio’s Amleto with Opera Delaware as Laertes, and performed the title role in Mascagni’s L’amico Fritz with Boston Midsummer Opera.

"All three Tabarro principals acted (and interacted) very credibly. Eleni Calenos (Giorgietta) proved a find, a real verista who delivered the goods stylistically, with keen phrasing and darkly warm if occasionally resin-tipped vocalism. Matthew Vickers looked a burly...

"Calenos gave an exceptionally musical and heartfelt interpretation of a woman torn between her desire to be faithful and her need for an independent life. And as her paramour, tenor Vickers has a romantic presence and the ample, bright squillo to ride Puccini’s lush o...
