Matthew White



American tenor Matthew White, whom the New York Classical Review said had a “distinctive tenor [with a] dark and powerful lyric sound,” recently made critically acclaimed debuts as Roméo in Gounod’s Roméo et Juiliette with Cincinnati Opera, the Duca in Rigoletto with Edmonton Opera, and Pinkerton in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly with the Princeton Festival.

In the 2021-2022 season, Mr. White will join Michigan Opera Theatre as Rodolfo in Yuval Sharon’s new production of La bohème, told in reverse; the production will later play at the Spoleto Festival USA. He will also sing Don José in Carmen with Arizona Opera, Lancelot in Chausson’s Le roi Arthus with Bard SummerScape, and Frederic in The Pirates of Penzance with Cincinnati Opera.

Cancelations due to the Covid-19 pandemic included Stravinsky’s Pulcinella with Dallas Opera, Roméo with Michigan Opera Theatre, Pinkerton with Cincinnati Opera, and Alfredo in La traviata with Lyric Opera of Kansas City. In the 2020-2021 season, Mr. White performed Pinkerton with Tulsa Opera. He also enjoyed touring with “The Bad Boys of Opera” at various venues.
