Richard Conrad, tenor

Richard Conrad has enjoyed equal success as singer, actor, impresario, stage director, and teacher. As a young student, his ability to meet the technical and stylistic demands of the florid music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries resulted in an invitation to make a series of now-classic recordings singing tenor repertoire with Joan Sutherland, Marilyn Home, and Richard Bonynge, which brought him into international prominence. He has performed in opera, concert, plays, operettas and musicals, and on radio and television in the United States, Canada, Central America, Europe, Africa, Scandinavia, and the former Soviet Union, and has made many recordings. In the mid-1980s he retrained his natural baritone, and now specializes in the operas of Gilbert and Sullivan and bel canto composers. As Founder and, for 23 years, Artistic Director of Boston Academy of Music, he presented many Boston operatic premieres, and a revival of Barber’s Vanessa with the present cast. He is Artistic Director of the Bostonian Opera and Concert Ensemble.
