Acclaimed for his “very beautiful, well-produced voice” and “potential in the dramatic repertoire”, bass-baritone Andrew Richardson has performed wide-ranging repertoire with regional companies in America. His performance skills were honed as a Young Artist with the Sarasota Opera and the Palm Beach Opera.
Mr. Richardson’s roles include Scarpia in Tosca, Bartolo in Le nozze di Figaro, Zuniga in Carmen, Bethune and Procida in I Vespri Siciliani, Peter in Hansel and Gretel, George Benton in Dead Man Walking and the Baron, Don Issachar and Cacambo in Candide. In addition to his performances with Sarasota and Palm Beach, he has been heard at Opera at Florham and Cardona Opera, and will shortly sing the Lautsprecher in Viktor Ullman’s Der Kaiser von Atlantis with the New York Chamber Society, as well as Daland/Dutchman excerpts with the Wagner Society of New York.
Mr. Richardson is the recipient of an Encouragement Award from the Wagner Society of New York and has been a finalist in the Vincero World Singing Competition and the International Lyric Competition Città di Brescia. He holds Doctor of Music and Master of Music degrees from Indiana University.
