Paul Appleby, tenor

American Paul Appleby has become one of the most admired tenor voices of his generation, regularly appearing on the world’s great opera, concert and recital stages. Opera News writes of him, “… his tenor is limpid and focused, but with a range of colour unusual in an instrument so essentially lyric… His singing is scrupulous and musical; the voice moves fluidly and accurately.”Appleby’s 2020/2021 season includes a return to Glyndebourne Festival as Tamino in Barbe et Doucet’s production of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte under Constantin Trinks.

Paul Appleby is a passionate advocate of art song, and has performed at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Washington’s Kennedy Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Aspen and Caramoor Festivals, as part of the Boston Celebrity Series and for the Marilyn Horne Foundation. A graduate of New York’s Juilliard School and the Lindemann Young Artist Program at the Metropolitan Opera, Appleby has since been a frequent guest artist on that stage including as Hylas in Berlioz’s Les Troyens under Fabio Luisi, as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail and David in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg conducted by James Levine, and in a ​star-making performance” (New York Post) as the lead role of Brian in the North American premiere of Nico Muhly’s Two Boys under the baton of David Robertson.
