A new addition to the roster at Sarasota Opera, Schlievert immediately showed his worth by being awarded the Stuart R. Silver Award in 2018. He had a successful 2019 Festival Season with Sarasota Opera, where his role in Nabucco was lauded by Brooklyn Discovery, claiming him as an “artist rising like the sun to a bright future.” In the 2020 Winter Festival Season, Schlievert debuted as the hot-headed swordsman Tybalt in Gounod’s Romeo & Juliet. Schlievert also fulfilled understudy duties for the demanding tenor lead Giuseppe Hagenbach in Alfredo Catalani’s masterpiece, La Wally. His efforts were rewarded not only in the press, but by the company announcing him as the Mandelker Award winner.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Schlievert was able to collaborate virtually with Dayton Opera in their Postcards from Dayton streaming series, as well as virtually and in person with Sarasota Opera in their Fall Concerts. He was well received by the audiences, with the Sarasota Herald-Tribune saying “Schlievert has a sure-footed and pleasing dramatic voice which can also wield a dramatic punch.”
