Nmon Ford

Baritone

  • Baritone Nmon Ford was outstanding as Jochanaan. His opening lines were surprisingly powerful, sung as they were from under the stage in the cistern. But he sang with resonant dignity throughout.
    Mark Kanny, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
  • Nmon Ford’s lyrical baritone was effective in his passages of religious fervor … he was a striking, gaunt zealot…
    Robert Croan, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • Equally gripping was the terrific baritone Nmon Ford...his anger was palpable as he declared his plan for vengeance, and his presence electrified whenever he was on the stage.
    Janelle Gelfand, USA Today Cincinnati
  • In 2016, Nmon Ford returns to the American operatic landscape as a baritone of some repute in dramatic repertoire.  Appearing as Don Pizzaro Fidelio alongside Christine Goerke at Cincinnati Opera, USA Today said “Equally gripping was the terrific baritone Nmon Ford, who embodied the evil Pizarro with wicked abandon. His anger was palpable as he declared his plan for vengeance, and his presence electrified whenever he was on the stage.” (Janelle Gelfand, July 8, 2016).  Nmon continued to Pittsburgh Opera where he sang the role of Jochanaan against Patricia Racette’s Salome and again won exceptional reviews with the press calling him “powerful”, “outstanding”, “striking” and “resonant”.

    Past successes include his tenure in the ensemble at Staatsoper Hamburg, where he made role debuts as Scarpia Tosca, title role Billy Budd, The Traveler Death in Venice, Thoas Iphigénie en Tauride and Demetrius A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  In Hungary, he sang Escamillo Carmen at the Szeged Open-Air Festival, and he performed at Opéra National de Bordeaux as Jochanaan in a new production of Salome.
