Jason Buckwalter, baritone
Baltimore-based baritone, Jason Buckwalter is known for his “super-sized characters” (The Sybaritic Singer) and “theatrical fire.” (Baltimore City Paper) A native of Landenberg, Pennsylvania, Jason performs throughout Maryland, Virginia, DC, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Equally comfortable in opera, musical theater, oratorio, and song repertoire, he has performed with a wide variety of companies including the Washington National Opera, Lyric Opera Baltimore, Baltimore Concert Opera, Annapolis Chorale, and the Young Victorian Theatre Company.
Operatic roles include Papageno in Die Zauberflöte; Belcore in L'elisir d'amore; Count Almaviva in Le Nozze di Figaro; Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus; Schaunard, Marcello, Benoit, and Alcindoro in La Bohème. His portrayals of Benoit and Alcindoro in Chesapeake Chamber Opera's production of La Bohème were praised by Tim Smith of The Baltimore Sun as “dynamic.”
