Andrew Bidlack


Featured by Opera News as one of their ‘top 25 brilliant young artists’ (October 2015), tenor Andrew Bidlack is renowned for his interpretation of roles in contemporary opera, as well as his appearances in standard repertoire. Mr. Bidlack’s career highlights include Beppe I Pagliacci at the Metropolitan Opera; Lyonnel Le Roi Arthus at BARD/Summerscape Opera; Almaviva Il barbiere di Siviglia and Arcadio Florencia en el Amazonas at Florida Grand Opera;  Tamino Die Zauberflöte at FGO and at Madison Opera; his highly lauded performances in the role of Bill Flight at Des Moines Metro Opera; the principal role of Rob Hall in Joby Talbot’s Everest, a role he sang again at Chicago Opera Theatre and at Austin Opera; also at COT his debut as Greenhorn Moby-Dick, a role he originally inaugurated in workshop performances during his tenure as an Adler Fellow at San Francisco Opera; and his UK debut at Welsh National Opera in Iain Bell’s In Parenthesis as Private John Ball directed by David Pountney and conducted by Carlo Rizzi with performances at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. Future appearances include Doctor The Diving Bell and the Butterfly at Dallas Opera.

“How fitting, though, that the most beautiful voice in the cast belonged to tenor Andrew Bidlack, who as the everyman Greenhorn stands as the story’s conscience and its most humane and vulnerable persona. By opera’s end, we believe that he has preserved at least a shred of the innocence that Ahab and this narrative otherwise have taken from him.”  Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune, 27 April 2019

“As Lyonnel, tenor Andrew Bidlack was second to none in terms of vocal glamour and created a particularly sympathetic character as Lancelot’s faithful squire.”  Rick Perdian, Seen and Heard International, 31 July 2021


“Exuding a cat-like coolness, Andrew Bidlack, as Andy, saunters around a bench area in Christopher Park and playfully eyes a man across the way that looks interested…Bidlack, convincingly told the story of a kid looking for love, who finds it on the Stonewall dance floor.”
