Performance Year: 2015
Hailed as a “remarkable young tenor,” Edwin Vega made his professional debut with English National Opera as Molqi, in a new production of John Adams’ The Death of Klinghoffer, a co-production with the Metropolitan Opera. The New York Times recently praised him as an ardent, youthful tenor as the title character in the staged world premiere of Mohammed Fairouz’s Sumeida’s Song (the first Arab-American opera to be fully produced on an American stage). This season has featured debuts with San Antonio Opera (Fantastic Mr. Fox, Salome) and Toledo Opera (Susannah). Previous seasons included performances with the Komische Oper Berlin, the Kennedy Center, Santa Fe Opera, Opera Omaha, New York City Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Chicago Opera Theater and in Carnegie Hall.
