Italian-American Baritone, Joe Lodato, “an artist the world is excited to see,” is a top contender for the Verdi Baritone repertoire on the international scene. Having sung the title roles of Rigoletto and Don Giovanni, Amonasro in Aida, Renato in Un ballo in maschera, Germont in La Traviata, Peter in Hansel und Gretel all to great acclaim, he has diligently prepared many of the core roles in the fach with the world's top maestri and has been described as possessing a “historic - golden aged voice” with a “stunningly beautiful timbre, italianate snarl, mixed with a controlled passion and deep understanding of the repertoire,” and “this is an artist poised to breakthrough in a major way.”

Projects for last season included Joe’s feature film début as “The Opera Singer” in “KILL ROOM” starring Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson and Joe Manganella, his Lincoln Center concert début on the American Songbook series with composer Huang Ruo, Pa Zegner in Mizzoly/Vavrek’s Proving Up with Opera Las Vegas, Dikson in New Amsterdam Opera’s production of La dame blanche, and Angelotti with Heartbeat Opera. Concert appearances last season included his Carnegie Hall début as a soloist in Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs with Mid-America Productions, as well as engagements with Terpsikord, Vero Beach Opera, Boheme Opera NJ, and Opera at Florham. Engagements for the current season include Monterone in Rigoletto with Opera Baltimore. [read more...]
