David Kravitz

Baritone David Kravitz has been widely praised for the "power, character" and "resonance and fluency" of his singing (Boston Globe; Opera News), his "brilliantly natural" acting and "perfect comic timing" (Boston Globe; St. Louis Post-Dispatch), his "eloquent" and "superb" diction (Boston Phoenix; Boston Herald), and his "drop-dead musicianship" (Boston Globe) on both the operatic and the concert stages. In the 2010–11 season, Mr. Kravitz sings the Businessman in Intermezzo for his debut at New York City Opera, and appears as the United Nations Delegate in the world premiere of Tod Machover’s Death and the Powers at Opéra de Monte-Carlo, with subsequent performances of the work that season at Chicago Opera Theater and in Boston in a production by the American Repertory Theater. He also returns to Opera Boston as the Provost Marshall and Gold Merchant in Hindemith’s rarely performed Cardillac, sings Handel’s Messiah for his debut with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, covers Matthias Goerne in Britten’s War Requiem led by Seiji Ozawa and appears as Nick Shadow in The Rake’s Progress with Emmanuel Music. He closes the season as Taddeo in L’italiana in Algeri with Boston Midsummer Opera.
