Vocalist - Baritone

Hailed by the New York Times for a voice that is “fully powered and persuasively expressive”, Matthew Worth is quickly becoming the baritone of choice for innovative productions and contemporary works on the operatic leading edge. Earlier this year, he created the role of Raymond Shaw in the world premiere of The Manchurian Candidate with Minnesota Opera. Opera News raved, “He sang beautifully, particularly in the upper reaches of his voice, with perfect diction.” In 2015-16 he leads another highly anticipated world premiere with Fort Worth Opera as John F. Kennedy in David T. Little & Royce Vavrek’s JFK – an intimate portrait of the President and First Lady on the eve of the President’s fateful trip to Dallas.

“[Victoria] Crutchfield gave baritone Matthew Worth a young foil … and a direct concept — dress-up and child’s play — resulting in fluent entertainment. The performance was superb, pianist Stephen Scarlato elegantly setting up Worth’s suave, buoyant, beautiful singing.”

Stephen Hartke's The Greater Good was commissioned by Glimmerglass Opera, and is a strikingly original contribution to the operatic repertory. Based on an iconic short story by Maupassant set during the immediate aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War, The Greater Good is notable for its sure-footed dramatic pacing and astute use of different techniques and subtle references to a variety of musical styles in order to portray the characters in a variety of moods and situations. This is the opera's world premiere recording.
