Hailed as “the real thing” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) and praised for his “elegant style” (Boston Globe), Sumner Thompson is one of the most sought-after young baritones singing today. His appearances on the operatic stage include the title role in Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo (Contemporary Opera Denmark in Copenhagen), Uberto in La Serva Padrona (Apollo’s Fire), the Traveller in Britten’s Curlew River (Britten-Pears School and Aldeburgh Festival, UK), Schaunard in La Bohème (Granite State Opera), and the Count in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (Commonwealth Opera). Mr. Thompson’s appearances in Chicago Opera Theatre’s productions of Britten’s Death in Venice and Rossini’s Il Viaggio a Reims were also highly praised. A favorite in top-tier early music circles, he has appeared at the Boston Early Music Festival as the Satir in its recent production of Conradi’s Ariadne.
