Andrew Bidlack


Featured by Opera News as one of their ‘top 25 brilliant young artists’ (October 2015), tenor Andrew Bidlack begins the 2019-20 season at Liepāja Symphony Orchestra, Latvia in the role of Tony West Side Story before travelling to Intermountain Opera for Ricky Ian Gordon’s “27” appearing as Pablo Picasso. The artist returns to Chicago Opera Theater for the double bill of Everest, reprising the role of Rob Hall and in the role of Young Gypsy Aleko. He sings further performances of Rob Hall with Austin Opera and BBC Symphony Orchestra in London, and with Atlanta Symphony he returns for performances of Carmina Burana conducted by Donald Runnicles.

“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

“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.”
