Alex Boyer , tenor, is well known to Island City Opera patrons, performing first in 2014 as Manrico in Il Trovatore, then in 2015 as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor, then in 2016 as Rodolfo in La Bohème and the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto. Mr. Boyer will sing the title role Kashchey in January 2018’s North American premiere production of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Kashchey the Immortal.
Mr. Boyer is steadily gaining recognition for his commanding voice and dramatic portrayals of the lyric and spinto tenor repertoire. Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle for Festival Opera’s production of Pagliacci, Boyer “mustered a large, potent sound that brought a welcome measure of anguish and dark menace to the role of Canio; his delivery of the famous showpiece ‘Vesti la giubba’ lacked nothing in the way of grit and vocal power.”
Mr. Boyer made his San Francisco Opera debut as El Remendado in 2017 in Carmen. Then as the Abbot in Andrea Chenier the same year. He has recently performed the roles of Marcello in Leoncavallo’s La Bohème and Alwa in Lulu with West Edge Opera, Lt. B.F. Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Livermore Valley Opera, and, Lensky in Eugene Onegin with Opera Idaho. During his residency at Opera San Jose from 2008 through 2013, Boyer performed the roles of Nadir in The Pearl Fishers, Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, and Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi. He has participated in the Merola Opera Program (2007) and Santa Fe Opera’s Apprenticeship Program for Singers.
Other recent engagements include covering the roles of Pollione in Norma, Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, and Ahab in Moby Dick with the Dallas Opera.
As a resident principal artist with Opera San José, he performed Manrico in Il trovatore, Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi, Canio in Pagliacci, the title role in Faust, Cavaradossi in Tosca, the title role in Idomeneo, and many others. He is an alumnus of the Merola Opera Program, the Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Program for Singers, and is a recipient of the Mario Lanza Scholarship Award. A New York native, Boyer holds degrees from Boston University and Manhattan School of Music.
