Biography

Stillwater, Minnesota native and 2018 Richard Tucker Career Grant Winner Jack Swanson is quickly becoming one of the most sought after young tenors in the opera world. His distinctive high lyric voice is known for singing the acrobatic arias of Rossini and the legato melodies of Donizetti.

This season brings Mr. Swanson to new stages and familiar ones: first in Oslo, Norway as Count Almaviva in a new production of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia. Mr. Swanson was then to perform Don Ramiro in Rossini’s La Cenerentola with both Houston Grand Opera and Minnesota Opera, both we’re cancelled due to Covid-19. He will then perform Rossini’s Stabat Mater in Rome under the baton of Myung-Whun Chung. Mr. Swanson will return to Oper Köln for a production of Il Barbiere di Siviglia and then premiere two role debuts with Garsington Opera, one as Comte Ory and the other as the Italian singer in Der Rosenkavalier.

Mr. Swanson made notable debuts with Oper Frankfurt as Rodrigo in Rossini’s Otello, Nemorino with Den Norske Opera, Glyndebourne Opera as Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia, the Los Angeles Opera in the title role of Candide, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City as Almaviva, and his mainstage debut with the Santa Fe Opera as Lindoro in L’italiana in Algeri. On the concert stage, Mr. Swanson was heard in Bernstein on Broadway concerts with the Orchestre National de Lille and in Rossini’s Stabat Mater with the Choral Arts Society of Washington.
You can hear an ideal bel canto voice, smooth, perfectly focused, with an incomprehensible fluency and a silver timbre. It is hardly too high to compare him to the best in his field, such as Juan Diego Flórez, and to predict a brilliant international career.”
