Hailed as a “remarkable young tenor,” Edwin Vega made his professional debut with English National Opera as Molqi in a new production of John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer, a coproduction with the Metropolitan Opera, directed by Tom Morris (Tony Award winner for War Horse). The New York Times recently praised Mr. Vega as an “ardent, youthful tenor” as the title character in the staged world premiere of Prototype: Opera/Theater/Now’s production of Mohammed Fairouz’s Sumeida’s Song (the first Arab-American opera to be fully produced on an American Stage). Engagements for 2014/15 include Farmer Bunce in Fantastic Mr. Fox and the Fourth Jew in Salome with Opera San Antonio, and Little Bat in Susannah with Toledo Opera. During the 2013-2014 season, Mr. Vega debuted with the Komische Oper Berlin in Zimmerman’s Die Soldaten (Junge Offizier), Virginia Opera (Tanzmeister/Ariadne auf Naxos), and National Symphony Orchestra (Faninal’s Major-Domo/Der Rosenkavalier). The 2012- 2013 season included performances with Opera Omaha (Priest, Armored Guard/The Magic Flute), New York City Opera (Don Miguel cover/La Perichole), Cincinnati Opera (Faninal’s Major-Domo, Italian Tenor (cover)/Der Rosenkavalier) and a return to the Metropolitan Opera Workshop. The season concluded with performances in None But the Lonely Heart: The Strange Story of Tchaikovsky and Madame von Meck and L’incornazione di Poppea.
