Alex Boyer, tenor

Tenor ALEX BOYER is steadily gaining recognition for his commanding voice and dramatic portrayals of the lyric and spinto tenor repertoire. Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle for Festival Opera’s production of Pagliacci, Boyer “mustered a large, potent sound that brought a welcome measure of anguish and dark menace to the role of Canio; his delivery of the famous showpiece ‘Vesti la giubba’ lacked nothing in the way of grit and vocal power.”
                  Most recently, he has been seen as Tichon in Janáček's Káťa Kabanová with West                                  Edge Opera, Cavaradossi with Hawaii Opera Theatre and as Captain Ahab in                                         Jake Heggie's Moby Dick with Chicago Opera Theater. 
                               Other engagements include covering the roles of Pollione in Norma,                                                        Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, and Ahab in Moby Dick with the Dallas                                                   Opera; performing the roles of the Abbot in Andrea Chénier and                                                           Remendado in Carmen with San Francisco Opera; Rodolfo in La bohème                                           and the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto with Island City Opera; Marcello in                                          Leoncavallo's La bohème and Alwa in Lulu in the acclaimed West Edge                                            Opera production; Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Livermore Valley                                         Opera;
Lenski in Evgeny Onegin with Opera Idaho; and Edgardo in Lucia di                                   Lammermoor and Manrico in Il trovatore with Island City Opera.
                       As a resident principal artist with Opera San Jose, he has performed Manrico in

                  Il trovatore, Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi, Canio in Pagliacci, the title role in Faust,                                    Cavaradossi in Tosca, the title role in Idomeneo, and many others. He is an alumnus                          of the Merola Opera Program and the Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Program for                                      Singers.

“Tenor Alexander Boyer, as the jealous Canio… came through with a heartfelt and dramatically translucent account of the great curtain aria ‘Vesti la giubba.’"

Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, 2011
