Jarrett Porter



American baritone Jarrett Porter, whom Opera News noted has an “imposing baritone,” is emerging as a versatile artist known for his strong acting, sonorous voice, and handsome, youthful look. In the current season as an ensemble member of Oper Frankfurt, Jarrett Porter will sing Borow in Giordano’s Fedora, Sprecher in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Curio in Giulio Cesare, and Barbavano in Die Banditen. Outside of Frankfurt, he also joins Berkshire Opera Festival this summer as Valentin in Gounod’s Faust.

In the 2021-2022 season he made role debuts in his first year in Oper Frankfurt’s Internationale Opernstudio including Leone in Händel’s Tamerlano, Edgar in Vito Zuraj’s World Premiere (voted world premiere of the 2023 season by Opernwelt) Blühen, the Elder Son and The Herold in Britten’s The Prodigal Son / The Burning Fiery Furnace, Herzog Hoël in Frank Martin’s Le Vin Herbé, Elviro in Händel’s Xerxes, and Masetto in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. He returned to the Opera Theatre of St. Louis as Dr. Oliver Sacks in the world premiere of Tobias Picker’s Awakenings, and joined Arizona Opera as Guglielmo in Così fan tutte.
