Nmon Ford

Baritone

Panamanian-American baritone, Nmon Ford, steps into new territory in 2020 by performing the title role Orpheus: a house music opera, written by the artist, which has a Spring run scheduled at London’s Young Vic Theatre, directed by Charles Randolph-Wright. At Dallas Symphony Orchestra he sings performances of A Sea Symphony under the baton of Robert Spano.

No stranger to London, Nmon won exceptional reviews when he appeared as Crown Porgy & Bess last season in a new production which transfers this season to the Metropolitan Opera; Nmon returns to the role in Vienna, Austria, later this year.

“Of the major characters, only Nmon Ford as Bess’s violent lover Crown has the necessary vocal heft and stage presence, and his ability to cow the entire community during the storm scene arouses a genuine thrill of terror.”

Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph, 12 October 2018

“Calm and collected, Nmon Ford, as the Celebrant, made a sweet sound…”
