BIOGRAPHY

Praised for his “commanding sonority” (Opera News) and described as “handsome, agile, and with a voice to match” (Boulder Daily Camera), bass-baritone Christopher Job is a “rising star on the American opera scene” (Grand Junction Free Press).


Mr. Job has been engaged by The Metropolitan Opera since the beginning of his career, making his house début in their production of The Nose. Other notable engagements at the esteemed opera house include the role of Sciaronne in Tosca, Sir Gualtiero Raleigh in Roberto Devereux, Ceprano in Rigoletto, the Imperial Commissioner in Madama Butterfly, and their productions of Don Carlo, The Enchanted Island, The Nose, From the House of the Dead, and Lulu created by world-renowned artist and director William Kentridge. Additionally, Job has joined the company for productions of Cendrillon, Roméo et Juliette, La fanciulla del West, and La Clemenza di Tito. He can also be seen on seven of their “Live in HD” broadcasts, including Macbeth and as Brühlmann in Werther.


Job continued his tenure at The Met last season with roles including Leader of the King’s Guard in Medea, Sciarrone in Tosca, and the Marquis in La traviata, in addition to roles in The Hours, Die Zauberflöte, Lohengrin, and Der Rosenkavalier.
