About

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.”
