(Camille) Brazilian-American tenor Pedro Barbosa has run the gamut of the performing arts: from performing Children’s Theatre in Chicago, to appearing as a featured dancer in the Dance Chicago Festival with the Frasz-Peskov Dance Company, to working with various musical theatre companies across the Midwest. Ultimately, Pedro has found his artistic voice in an operatic setting. Operatic credits include Cincinnati Opera, Tulsa Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Cincinnati Chamber Opera, Opera Western Reserve’s Queen City Chamber Opera, Opera Louisiane, Cedar Rapids Opera, and Concert: Nova (Cincinnati), and most recently Opera Project Columbus. Notable roles to his credit include Camille (Merry Widow), Il Conte d’Almaviva (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Nemorino (L’elisir d’amore), and Tamino (The Magic Flute), Don Ramiro (La cenerentola), and Roméo (Roméo e Juliette). Recent engagements include Featured Guest Artist in the Broadway Night Fundraiser with Winter Opera St. Louis, and in July 2019 he received raves for his interpretation of Alfred in Die Fledermaus at the Opera Company in Martha’s Vineyard. Pedro will return to Winter Opera St. Louis for an Opera Gala in late August 2019, and will appear in a Duo-Concert of Broadway and Opera Highlights with his wife Dana Pundt in Sacket’s Harbor, N.Y. The 2019-20 season features his debut with St. Petersburg Opera as Camille in Lehar’s The Merry Widow, and in November a debut in the role of Frederic in Pirates of Penzance with Winter Opera St. Louis. March 2020 features a debut in the Mozart Requiem with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic.
Pedro resides in Cincinnati, OH, and is the proud father of two girls. In addition to continuing to perform, they manage a successful voice studio, enabling them to bring the joy of singing to the creative people of Cincinnati.
