Theo Hoffman, baritone, with Bradley Moore, piano

A 2016 alumnus of The Juilliard School and 2016 Grand Finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the versatile and charismatic lyric baritone Theo Hoffman is currently a member of the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program at LA Opera. He has appeared as soloist in concert with New York Festival of Song at both Carnegie Hall and the Caramoor Music Center, and will do so in the future at the Moab Music Festival. He made his Alice Tully Hall solo recital debut as winner of the 2015 Juilliard Vocal Arts Honors Recital, and sang Joseph K. in the US premiere of Philip Glass's The Trial in the spring of 2017 at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis before rejoining LA Opera for the 2017-2018 season. The program, entitled "Evening Fantasy", includes songs evocative of nightfall by Schubert, Fauré, Mahler, Zemlinsky, Barber, and Ives, among others.

"With easy control, Hoffman's strong, warm voice filled the space . . . the entire room sat mesmerized . . .This was a performance so visceral, so equally raw and refined, it felt completely fresh." (Los Angeles Times)

Performance Timing: Part One - 45 min.; Intermission - 20 min.; Part Two - 45 min.
