Joshua Stewart

Tenor

American tenor Joshua Stewart’s recent appearances include the role of Valcour L’amant Anonyme in the rarely heard work by Joseph Bologne, and the role of Jonah The Time of our Singing, both at Theater St Gallen in Switzerland. Previous highlights include his debut as Rodolfo La Boheme with Columbus Symphony, his debut as Son in the highly acclaimed new work Blue at Seattle Opera, his celebrated debut in the title role Albert Herring at Princeton Festival in the US, the tenor soloist Sanctuary Road with Chautauqua Symphony, and George Walker’s Mass and Tippet’s A Child of our Time, both with BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Future engagements include his return to Seattle Opera for the roles of Street and Elijah in Anthony Davis’s X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X before he joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra in London for Jose Garcia’s 1826 Messa di Santa Cecilia.

Collaborating with Peter Sellars, the artist sang the role of The Shepherd Oedipus Rex in performances staged by the director under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen at the Baltic Sea Festival in Stockholm, at Festival Aix en Provence, and in London at the Royal Festival Hall. He made his debut with Los Angeles Philharmonic as Narrator in Sellars’s Das Paradies und die Peri with Gustavo Dudamel on the podium.

 

 

“As Elijah Muhammad, Joshua Stewart stood out from the very first for his impressive clarion vocality. The voice sounded glorious in all registers, and especially in the top range, where the tessitura was challenging.”  Erica Miner, Broadway World, February 25, 2024.

 

“Joshua Stewart as Parker masterfully navigates the challenging score, adapting with jazzier vocals or powerful vibratos.” Crystal Paul, Seattle Times, 25 February 2020

“As “king of saxophone” Charlie Parker, New Orleans native Joshua Stewart’s clarion tenor projected superbly, with spot-on operatic placement from the low to high ranges and in some notable Mozartian flourishes, poignant soul style, and deftness. He handled the stratospheric tessitura and dramatic demands of this non-stop tour de force with such great proficiency that the audience practically raised the roof with their applause at the end.”
