Praised as “expressive and dynamic” and “vocally splendid”, American baritone Michael Kelly continues to distinguish himself as a consummate artist, sought-after for his riveting interpretations of recital, concert and operatic repertoire.  Most recently, Mr. Kelly made his Parisian debut as Sergeant Lombardi in the French premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s PASSION at the Théâtre du Châtelet, in a critically acclaimed production staged by award-winning actress / director Fanny Ardant and starring Natalie Dessay. Recent engagements include the role of Edward Kynaston in Carlisle Floyd’s THE PRINCE OF PLAYERS with the Little Opera Theatre of New York, Count Gil IL SEGRETO DI SUSANNA with The Orchestra Now at Carnegie Hall, and Figaro IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA with Indianapolis Opera.  Upcoming engagements include Papageno THE MAGIC FLUTE for Opera Fairbanks and the Soldier in a revival of Matt Aucoin’s THE CROSSING at BAM.

Mr. Kelly has appeared in recitals at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, in Houston Texas, and at the National Opera Center and taken part in world premieres by Matthew Aucoin and Mohammed Fairouz.  Recent engagements include Fauré Requiem, Mozart Coronation Mass,  Orff Carmina Burana, and Schumann Der Rose Pilgerfahrt with the Houston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andrés Orozco-Estrada.  An avid and passionate recital and chamber music interpreter, he can be found on soon-to-be released recordings of Del Tredici’s A Field Manual, and a live recording of Fairouz’s Zabur for Naxos Records.  Other engagements include Handel’s Israel in Egypt with Berkshire Choral Festival, the twentieth anniversary production of Kimper’s PATIENCE AND SARAH, and the New York premier of Zabur at Carnegie Hall.
