Matt Hanscom

Baritone

Praised for his “rich baritone” and for singing with “power, insight, and flawless delivery,” Baritone Matt Hansom is enjoying success across the continent. In recent seasons this exciting young baritone has performed with Opera San Jose as the title role in Rigoletto, Scarpia in Tosca, Taddeo in Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri, Gino Carella in the World Premier of Mark Lanz Weiser’s Where Angels Fear to Tread based on the novel of the same name by E.M. Forster, Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, and finally as Conte Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro. Additional highlights include his “vocally and dramatically compelling” Comte de Toulouse in Verdi’s Jérusalem and a “fully realized portrait” of Slim in Carlisle Floyd’s Of Mice and Men, and a “most expressive, technically secure, and vocally commanding” Ping in Turandot, all with Sarasota Opera. In consecutive years he was a district winner, followed by a national semi-finalist in The Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and can be seen in the documentary film “The Audition.”
