Dane Suarez, tenor
Dane Suarez will be joining Baltimore Concert Opera for Thirsty Thursdays at the Opera: Madness Malbec and More. Lauded for his “warm and robust tenore spinto” and “pure earth-shaking lyricism,” American Dane Suarez is in high demand for his “golden throated” tenor. He sang on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera as a 2014 National Semi-Finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and made his John F. Kennedy Center debut in 2015 with Washington National Opera as Ely Parker in Glass’s Appomattox. Last season, Mr. Suarez made his New York City Opera debut in his "completely winning" performance as Joe in La fanciulla del West and joined Opera San José as a resident artist where he debuted the roles of Alfredo, Ruggero (La rondine), and Erik (Der fliegende Holländer). Mr. Suarez also lent his "big, heroic voice" to Pacific Opera Project's remount of La bohèmeAKA: "The Hipsters" as Rodolfo, where the Act I duet was described as "a transfixing moment of sublime beauty". This summer, he debuted the Title Role in Idomeneo with Opera NEO and returns to Pacific Opera Project to sing Don José at Ford Amphitheatre. Next season, Suarez returns to Opera San José debuting the roles of Pinkerton, Greenhorn (Moby-Dick), and Canio. He will also be featured in concerts with OperaDelaware and Baltimore Concert Opera and reprises his Rodolfo, alongside fiancée soprano Kerriann Otaño in her role debut as Mimì with Pacific Opera Project. Dane currently resides in San José with Kerriann, and their two pups, Frankie and Lup.
