Biography

The "athletically comic" and "strong-voiced" tenor, Max Zander is a native of Great Neck, NY. He spent the 2019-2020 season with Opera Idaho, where he sang Guillot de Morfontaine in Manon and Parpignol in La Bohème, and made his debut with Opéra Louisiane as King Kaspar in Amahl and the Night Visitors. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, he also recorded Gherardo in Gianni Schicchi and Caius in Falstaff for Social Distance Opera and presented a live online recital for Hub City Opera. He begins his 2020-2021 season as the tenor soloist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre's Curtain's Up concert and sings the Witch in a filmed production of Hansel and Gretel with Bel Cantanti Opera.

Engagements cancelled due to COVID-19 included covering Father Grenville in Dead Man Walking with Opera Idaho and singing the Witch in Hansel and Gretel for his debut with City Lyric Opera. He was also set to return to both Hub City Opera as the Tenor Soloist for Un\Rooted and Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre as Enoch Snow in Carousel.

Recent career highlights include Bardolfo in Falstaff with Sir Bryn Terfel and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Pong in Turandot with Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Don Issachar (and Cacambo cover) in Candide with Des Moines Metro Opera, Caius in Falstaff with Opera Saratoga, Tamino in The Magic Flute with Opera Iowa, Remendado in Carmen with the Indianapolis Symphony, Harry in La Fanciulla del West with Apotheosis Opera, Anselmo in Man of La Mancha with Utah Festival Opera, and Nemorino in L'Elisir d'Amore with the Montefeltro Festival in Italy.
The ensemble, dominated by a strong cadre of Muleteers, is perfect throughout, highlighted by a strong-voiced Max Zander as Anselmo.
