Vocalist - Tenor

As proclaimed by the critic of the New York Times, Joseph Dennis brings “a sweet and gleaming tenor of unforced beauty” to the opera world. He first gained international attention when he stepped into the title role at short notice in Huang Ruo’s opera Dr. Sun Yat-sen (American premiere, Santa Fe Opera), singing the complete role in Mandarin, and to great acclaim.

"With his powerful tenor and command of facial expressions, Dennis communicates war's degradation of the creative soul. On opening night, when he took those defiant first steps into No Man's Land, setting off the chain reaction that results in the show's dramatic peak, the audience went breathless and I felt my heart in my throat."
