Vocalist - Baritone, Symphony Pops
About

Baritone Stephen Powell brings his “rich, lyric baritone, commanding presence, and thoughtful musicianship” to a wide range of music (Wall Street Journal). He recently made a successful debut performance as the title role in Macbeth with Michigan Opera Theatre, of which Opera News wrote, “Powell’s undeniably powerful voice seethed with potential until his astonishing Act IV andante, when the gleaming beauty and sumptuous musicality of his rich baritone was finally given resplendent display."

"Powell, who sang the title role in San Diego Opera’s 'Rigoletto' earlier this season, was in robust voice, as always. He was mournful in 'Eri tu che Macchiavi quell’anima' in Verdi’s 'A Masked Ball,' serenely focused in 'O du mein holder Abensternden' from Wagner’s 'Tannhauser' and happily at ease with 'How to Handle a Woman' from 'Camelot.'"

"Simon Boccanegra - discreetly avant-garde opera by Verdi. The whole story takes place in the grim atmosphere of the doge's palace, consistently emphasized by music. Perhaps for this reason the opera is dominated by low voices, in the prologue, whose action begins at night, the protagonists sing with baritone and bass voices, and the female voices only appear in the choir."
