GABRIEL PREISSER

FIGARO, THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
ARCHIBALD CRAVEN, THE SECRET GARDEN

Praised for his "matinee idol charm and charisma," "a beautiful, luscious baritone," and "a compelling, commanding stage presence" by publications such as Opera News, the Star Tribune, and the Houston Chronicle, Gabriel Preisser received rave reviews once again for his performance of Lt. Gordon in the world-première of Kevin Putz's Pulitzer Prize-winning Silent Night with Minnesota Opera. He then took his portrayal of Lt. Gordon to Opera Philadelphia, Cincinnati Opera, and in his Michigan Opera Theatre début.

This season's engagements include the title role in Don Giovanni with Skylark Opera, Marcello in La bohème with Opera Orlando, Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Tampa, a concert conducted by Lee Afdahl with the Rochester Concert Series, as well as Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Archibald Craven in The Secret Garden with Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre. He also, after playing Scottish Lt. Gordon numerous times, switches sides in Putz's WWII opera as he portrays the French Lt. Audebert, this time around, in Silent Night with Piedmont Opera. Last season, Mr. Pressier narrated HK Gruber's Frankenstein and sang the baritone solo in Bach's St. Matthew Passion both with Colorado Symphony and sang Maximilian in Candide with Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Mercutio in Roméo et Juliette and Dandini in La Cenerentola with Opera Tampa, and the title role in Don Giovanni with Opera Orlando.
