STEPHANOS TSIRAKOGLOU

BARTOLO, THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
BEN WEATHERSTAFF, THE SECRET GARDEN
NARRATOR, INTO THE WOODS

Greek-American Bass-Baritone Stephanos Tsirakoglou is elated to return for his 4th season to Utah Festival Opera.  Mr. Tsirakoglou began his career in the USA specializing in the Italian buffo and bel canto repertoire.  Roles to his credit include Giorgio Walton, Doctor Dulcamara, Falstaff, Schicchi, Leporello, Mozart's Figaro, Don Magnifico, Don Pasquale, and both Rossini's and Mozart's Bartolo.  More recently he has expanded his repertoire to include many German roles both in comic operetta (Ollendorf in Der Bettelstudent and Frank in Die Fledermaus) and serious opera (Biterolf in Tannhaüser and Beckmesser in Die Meistersinger).

Mr. Tsirakoglou opened the 2017/2018 season at the Hessian State Theater in Wiesbaden.  Between March 2012 and July 2015, Mr. Tsirakoglou was a full-time member of the ensemble at the Thuringian State Theater in Meiningen, Germany, with guest engagements both in Germany (Chemnitz, Regensburg, etc.) and internationally, including New Orleans, USA, the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, Switzerland, and the Glyndebourne Festival. 

Mr. Tsirakoglou is in demand as a concert soloist as well, having sung the baritone and bass solos in the Mozart, Fauré, Brahms, Howells, and Verdi Requiems. He has also been heard performing Bach’s St. John Passion and Magnificat, Handel’s Foundling Hospital Anthem and Messiah, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Ode to St. Cecilia’s Day.  More information can be found at StephanosT.com.
