Zachary Wilson

American lyric baritone Zachary Wilson’s upcoming performances include Creonte in Pacini’s Medea, Giorgio Germont in La Traviata, and Gabriel von Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, all with Theater für Niedersachsen, as well as Mercutio in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette with Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern.

Recent engagements have included the roles of Prince and Rupert in the revival of Schneewitchen at Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin, the title role in Dionysos Rising at Teatro Sanbapolis in Trento and at the Wiener Festwochen in the Museum Quarter in Vienna, Tirenio in the new production of Il Pastor Fido at the Al Improvviso festival in Gliwice and at the Händelfestival in Halle, Zoroastro in Orlando at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, Ariodate in Serse at Theater Magdeburg, the title role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni in Israel, as well as Romeo in the new production of Romeo und Zeliha at Theater Dortmund.

Zachary’s international career began in 2009 with Fiorello in Il Barbiere di Siviglia at Chateau de Buc in France. After completing his education at the University of Northern Colorado - during which he sang various opera and musical roles, including Betto di Signa in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, Elviro in Händel’s Serse, and The Sergeant in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance - his career took him to Germany, where in 2011 he helped found the international concert group Opera et Cetera. After singing a wide range of concert repertoire with the group, he was engaged in 2012 by Theater und Orchester Heidelberg.

Among the varied roles performed in Heidelberg are Guglielmo in Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte, Peter Besenbinder in Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel, Schaunard in Puccini’s La Boheme, Masetto in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and Baron Duphoul in La Traviata under the baton of internationally acclaimed conductor Lahav Shani. He also sang Archelao in Porpora’s Mitridate at the well-known Winter in Schwetzingen baroque festival. During this time he debuted at the National Theater Mannheim as Romeo in Romeo and Zeliha. In summer of 2018 Zachary performed as Marcello in Puccini’s La Boheme at the Opern Festival Gut Immling. Shortly after that he debuted at Theater Dortmund.

In Heidelberg Zachary Wilson discovered a passion for modern music, and took part in the modern chamber opera evening In Meiner Nacht, where he sang the lead role in Christian Jost’s Death Knocks. He also sang the world premiere of Johannes Kalitzke’s new opera Pym as the bass in the demanding solo vocal quartet.

Off the opera stage, Mr. Wilson sang as a soloist in concerts with the Heidelberger Bachchor, featuring pieces such as Magnificat D-Dur by CPE Bach, and Vespro di Natale by Claudio Monteverdi. He was also the bass soloist in J.S. Bach’s Magnificat and Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben with the Elbipolis Hamburger Barockorchester and the Kantorei an der Schlosskirche Varel.
