With Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Voice from the Juilliard School as foundation, Daniel Sutin has built a worldwide success with a repertoire spanning operas from Boris Godunov to Wozzeck. He has sung in the major opera houses throughout the U.S., as well as with the Canadian Opera Company (Toronto), and starred around the globe from the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London, to Opera Hong Kong. This is his fourth appearance with Opera Las Vegas.
He’s at home in multiple genres of opera—among them Italian, German, and Russian. His repertoire has included the title roles in Rigoletto, Eugene Onegin, Billy Budd, and Wozzeck, as well as Marcello in La bohème, Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Germont in La traviata, Harlequin in Ariadne auf Naxos, Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Count di Luna in Il trovatore, Sid in Albert Herring, and Sharpless in Madama Butterfly.
Sutin made his Metropolitan Opera début in the 2001-2002 season as the Journalist in Berg’s Lulu with James Levine conducting. His reputation and roles with the Met have skyrocketed season after season. He’s concertized extensively, performing with tenor José Carreras, with the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico in Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, and in the Long Island Symphony’s performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Sutin has sung major roles in three Opera Las Vegas productions, including Scarpia in Puccini’s Tosca (2011), Figaro in Rossini’s Barber of Seville (2014) and Sharpless in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly (2015).
