Tenor Michael Morrow, called “riveting and breathtaking” by the Brooklyn Spectator (Canio in New York City’s Regina Opera 2014 production of I Pagliacci) had appearances in August as the title character in Verdi’s Otello in a production featuring Metropolitan Opera soprano Jennifer Check as Desdemona for Berks Opera Company and in June debuted as Manrico in Verdi’s Il Trovatore with New Rochelle Opera.
He’s recently been seen in the role of Calaf in Puccini’s Turandot with the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra and as the tenor soloist in Verdi’s Requiem with the Bozeman Symphony.
Last fall Michael sang Don José (Carmen) with St. Petersburg Opera in Florida, a role he also recently performed with New York City Opera on a tour of European cites including Monte Carlo, Zurich, Geneva, Paris and London, as well as performances in Las Vegas and New York City, and a performance at Bryant Park for NYCO’s “Opera in the Park” this past July.
A native of Kansas, Michael splits his time between Wichita and New York City. We’re thrilled to have him back in St. Petersburg.
