Young American tenor Paul Appleby has already earned a strong reputation for his expressive acting, interpretative depth and versatility and has won great praise for performances of Stravinsky’s Tom Rakewell (The Rake’s Progress), Handel’s Jonathan (Saul), Brian in Nico Muhly’s Two Boys and Mozart’s Tamino (Die Zauberflöte) among others. A graduate of both The Juillard School and The Lindemann Program, Appleby has worked regularly alongside James Levine at The Metropolitan Opera, most recently as David (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg) and in the current season for his debut as Belmonte (Die Entführung aus dem Serail).

A versatile performer, Appleby is as comfortable on the concert platform or recital stage as he is on the grand stages of the world’s opera houses. The current season brings a number of debuts including at the San Francisco Opera as Tamino, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for Mozart’s Requiem under Gustavo Dudamel, at London’s Wigmore Hall in recital with Malcolm Martineau, and as Berlioz’ Benedict at the 2016 Glyndebourne Festival.
