American tenor Victor Robertson begins Season 2019/20 in the role of Rinaldo Armida in Virginia, after which he travels to Hong Kong to appear as Camille The Merry Widow at Hong Kong Town Hall Concert Centre. He returns to the US to revive the role of Benny “Kid” Paret Champion at Michigan Opera Theatre, a role he inaugurated at Washington National Opera in the world premiere of this Terrence Blanchard original work and which he also sang at Opera de Montreal. At Opera Carolina, Victor sings the role of Hosea Williams in Douglas Tappin’s I Dream, a piece based upon a series of dreams, reminiscences and premonitions leading up to a fateful moment in modern American history—the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. Victor rounds out the season with a variety of concert appearances including the role of Il Duca in a concert of Rigoletto highlights.
The artist’s recent successes include his appearance in Sarasota Opera’s Il barbiere di Siviglia as The Count, his Metropolitan Opera debut as Raoul in a highly-lauded new production of The Merry Widow, and his Broadway debut in its longest running show, Phantom of the Opera. Victor also sang the role of Nadir Les pecheurs de perles at Toledo Opera.
A signature role, Victor has sung Rossini’s Count Almaviva at Coeur D’Alene Opera, Toledo Opera, Opera Carolina, Minnesota Opera, Michigan Opera Theatre, Manitoba Opera, Portland Opera, Arizona Opera, Opera Carolina and Santa Cruz Symphony. Other significant highlights include Rinuccio Gianni Schicchi at Opera Carolina, the title role Candide at France’s Opera National de Lorraine, the title role Orpheus at New York City Opera, and Sportin’ Life in Francesca Zambello’s production of Porgy and Bess at Capetown Opera, Israeli Opera, English National Opera, Welsh National Opera, Scottish National Opera, Royal Festival Hall London, Deutsche Opera Berlin, Dallas Opera and Los Angeles Opera; he also appeared as Rodolfo in Zambello’s La Boheme at Royal Albert Hall in London.
