In 2020, Mr. Rutter makes his American Lyric Theater debut in a workshop of The Opposable Thumb (Ugay / Crouch), joins Cerddorion as the Sorceress in Dido & Aeneas, returns to the AOP / NYU Opera Writing Workshop and makes his Fort Worth Opera debut workshopping the role of Nero in Jim Lowe and Kelley Rourke’s new adaptation of Poppea.
 
Dedicated to the creation and performance of new music, Mr. Rutter has developed the roles of Lola (Legendary, Rubinstein / Kim), Kyle (Three Way, Paterson / Coté), and the title role of Ashima (Jing Jing Luo) with The American Opera Project. Since 2018, Mr. Rutter has worked with students and alumni of NYU Tisch School of the Arts to develop and perform short operas presented as The Dinner Party Operas and The Stonewall Operas.

Mr. Rutter’s oratorio credits include Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem, and Bernstein’s
