Vocalist - Bass

The young American bass Kevin Burdette has already impressed audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with his mellifluous voice and strongly dramatic characterizations. The San Francisco Chronicle called his Leporello in Don Giovanni “a tour de force of vocal splendor and comic timing,” and the New York Times dubbed him “the Robin Williams of opera.” He was featured as Stefano in Adès’ The Tempest with the Metropolitan Opera, the DVD of which, on Deutsche Grammophon, was awarded the 2014 Grammy Award for “Best Opera Recording” and a French Diapason d’Or.

"Of those six performers, all are making their Atlanta Opera debuts, save Burdette, who played the Pirate King in last season’s production of The Pirates of Penzance. He likewise plays Osmin mostly for full-out comedy with his exaggerated, stylized gestures, at times to the level of silliness, using his whip as a jump rope in an extended episode of glee."
