Matthew Vickers

Internationally acclaimed tenor Matthew Vickers has been praised for his "brilliant and golden voice", his "burnished sound and confident acting", and hailed "a gutsy performer whose glowing tenor voice has interestingly dark, baritonal undertones."

In the 2019-2020 season Mr. Vickers debuted the role of Cavaradossi in Puccini's Tosca, reprised his Rodolfo in La Bohčme, premiered with Maggio Musicale Fiorentino as Il Principe Dmitri in Alfano's Risurezzione, performed as the tenor soloist in Beethoven's 9th Symphony, Sam Polk in Floyd's Susannah, and debuted the role of Calaf in Puccini's Turandot in concert with the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra.

In the 2015-2016 season, Mr. Vickers made his Sarasota Opera debut as Arrigo in Verdi's La Battaglia di Legnano, stepping in for an ailing colleague for 5 performances; took part in the east coast premiere of Faccio's Amleto with Opera Delaware as Laertes, and performed the title role in Mascagni's L'amico Fritz with Boston Midsummer Opera.
