Kenneth Kellogg


American bass, Kenneth Kellogg, enjoyed a busy and successful 2019-20 Season, starting in Europe with his return to Ópera de Oviedo in the role of Count Sam Horn Un ballo in Maschera. He travelled to Kraków, Poland for performances of Rossini’s Sigismondo singing the two roles of Ulderico and Zenovito with Capella Cracoviensis. In 2021, he appears as Commendatore Don Giovanni at Seattle Opera, and he returns to the role of Father Blue at Michigan Opera Theatre.

Past successes include the role of Sam Bakewell The Summer King at Michigan Opera Theatre, a role he inaugurated at Pittsburgh Opera during its world premiere. He returned to Washington National Opera for Father Palmer Silent Night and sang the role of Ashby La fanciulla del West at Maryland Opera.  Other career highlights include his appearance as Mephistopheles Faust at Opera de Lausanne and at Opera de Oveido, Spain; he was Young Emile Champion for Opera Parallele in its West Coast premiere.  As Sarastro Die Zauberflote, Kenneth made his debut at Opera de Lausanne, and sang the role at Virginia Opera and Opera Memphis.

The tall and distinguished Kenneth Kellogg made an eloquent Prince Gremin, his deep bass voice resounding throughout Meymandi Hall as if wrapped in velvet…”
