About

Following baritone Ben Edquist’s performance in Jake Heggie’s Out of Darkness: Two Remain with Atlanta Opera, Opera News wrote that he “…sang the role of the poet [Manfred] Lewin with stunning beauty, especially within the poignant and tango-esque ‘A Hundred Thousand Stars.’” An avid performer of contemporary opera, he has created several roles, including Sir Walter Raleigh in Gregory Spears’ O Columbia and Edward Kynsaton in Carlisle Floyd’s Prince of Players, both with Houston Grand Opera; the title role of Tom Cipullo’s Mayo with SUNY Potsdam; and Remo in David Sawer’s The Skating Rink with Garsington Opera.
