The American tenor AJ Glueckert can be heard during the 2017/18 season as Bob Boles in Peter Grimes, Flamand in Capriccio and Skuratov in Aus einem Totenhaus/From the House of the Dead - all new productions - and Froh in Das Rheingold. He made his European debut at Oper Frankfurt in 2014/15, singing the Prince in Rusalka. Last season, his first season as a member of the ensemble, he enjoyed great success singing Don José in Carmen, Lyonel in Flotow's Martha (available soon on CD - OehmsClassics), Raffaele in Stiffelio, and Erik in Der fliegende Holländer/The Flying Dutchman – a role he subsequently sang at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and Opéra Lille. He recently sang Bacchus in Ariadne auf Naxos at the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis and Glyndebourne Festival (house debut). AJ Glueckert enjoys a close relationship with San Francisco Opera, where he was an Adler Fellow and member of the Merola Opera Program, where recent roles have included Beadle Bamford (Sweeney Todd), Normanno (Lucia di Lammermoor) and Kunz Vogelsang (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg). He has also performed at Pittsburgh Opera, der Minnesota Opera and Opera Philadelphia. Concert work has included appearances with the Utah Symphony, the Santa Clara and Sacramento Symphony Orchestra. This graduate from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music won the Metropolitan Opera National Auditions regional competitions twice.
