Aaron Durand


An enthusiastic, coffee-loving baritone hailing from 100 Mile House, BC, Aaron Durand began singing lessons at the age of nine, but knew nothing of opera until a chance viewing of Carmen in Vancouver at age 16. Consumed by the wonderful music, Aaron tackled a bachelor's degree in music followed by a master's degree, both at UBC, where he performed as part of the celebrated UBC Opera Ensemble across Canada, China and eastern Europe. After graduating in 2012, Aaron joined Vancouver Opera's Yulanda M. Faris program for its inaugural year, performing roles in several mainstage productions including La bohème, The Pirates of Penzance, Albert Herring and Don Giovanni. Most recently, he was seen as Le Dancaïre in Vancouver Opera's Carmen, Fiorello/Sergeant in Edmonton Opera's Il barbiere di Siviglia, and Masetto in Against the Grain Theatre's #UncleJohn.
