We are indeed fortunate and proud to present Michael Anthony McGee in our Puccini program this Saturday, Nov. 19. Below is just a partial listing of Michael Anthony McGee’s credits.
Hailed by Opera News as possessing “a sturdy baritone and terrific swagger with equal portions of baritonal power and graceful subtlety,” Michael Anthony McGee is enjoying success on both the operatic and concert stages, in all styles from the Renaissance to Contemporary repertoire. Mr. McGee has sung leading roles throughout the United States, including the title roles in both Verdi’s FALSTAFF and Puccini’s GIANNI SCHICCHI with the Seattle Opera, Alphonse LA FAVORITE and the title role in Borodin’s PRINCE IGOR with the San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera Program, the American premiere of Tan Dun’s TEA: A MIRROR OF SOUL and Orest IPHIGÉNIE EN TAURIDE at the Santa Fe Opera, and Hermann Ortel DIE MEISTERSINGER at the Tanglewood Music Festival under the baton of Maestro James Levine. In his two years spent as a Filene Young Artist at Wolf Trap Opera Company, Mr. McGee added the roles of Don Geronio IL TURCO IN ITALIA, Snug A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM and was featured in the title role of Sondheim’s SWEENEY TODD with the National Symphony Orchestra in the 7000-seat Filene Center.
Mr. McGee made his Carnegie Hall debut with the Opera Orchestra of New York as The Tsar’s Valet in Rimsky-Korsakov’s THE TSAR’S BRIDE under the baton of Eve Queler. Mr. McGee is proud to continue his relationship with OONY and recently recorded the role of Bustamente in Massenet’s LA NAVARRAISE with Roberto Alagna and Elïna Garanca conducted by Alberto Veronese to be released by Deutsche Gramophone.
