New York City's Premier Concert Opera Company
ERIC LINDSEY - Duca Alfonso
Celebrated by Opera News for his "fat, resonant bass" and proclaimed as "a singer to watch" by the Virginia Gazette, bass Eric Lindsey has sung under the direction of conductors Victor DeRenzi, Marcello Cormio, Brent McMunn, Dr. Raymond Harvey, Ward Holmquist, Pacien Mazzagatti, Keith Chambers, Steven Sloane, Chris Fecteau, and Jorge Parodi. Recent engagements for Mr. Lindsey include the roles of Sarastro in The Magic Flute, the title role in Don Giovanni, Nourabad in The Pearl Fishers, Dottore Grenvil in La traviata, and his Spoleto Festival USA debut as the 5th Jew in Salome.
He is extremely excited to make his company debut as a Filene Artist for Wolf Trap Opera in their productions of Semele and Don Giovanni (portraying Cadmus & Somnus and the Commendatore, respectively). He will also be making his company debut as Il Sommo Sacerdote in Teatro Gratacielo's American premiere of La Vestale later this year.
He has worked as a young artist with Opera North and Sarasota Opera, singing the roles of Bonze, Calchas, Sciarrone, and Don Alfonso, respectively. He has also worked for companies such as Opera in Williamsburg, VA, Lakeland Opera, Opera Shreveport, New York City Opera, Atlanta Opera, and the Metropolitan Opera.
Mr. Lindsey has also been heavily involved in brand new stage works. He debuted the role of King Hjalmar in the world premiere of Princess Maleine, by Whitney George and Bea Goodwin for Dell'Arte Opera Ensemble and sang in a partial premiere of Fredis and Gudrid (then called Far Travelers) by Jeffrey Leiser.
Equally at home as a soloist in concert form as well as the stage, Mr. Lindsey performed the Fauré Requiem for Riverside Church in Manhattan, and Rossini's Stabat Mater for the Handel Society at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hannover, New Hampshire.
