Igor made his Island City Opera debut in La Boheme in March 2016 as the painter, Marcello.  And, in March 2017, Igor will make his Island City Opera directorial debut directing Jules Massenet’s touching opera Don Quixote.

Hailed by Opera News Magazine as “superb,” and “show-stealing,” and as “a triumph” by the San Francisco Chronicle, baritone Igor made his professional debut in his native Rio de Janeiro  at age 17 singing the role of  Dancaïre in Bizet’s Carmen.

Subsequent roles have included the title roles in Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia (Spain & USA), Mozart’sDon Giovanni (Brazil & USA) and Debussy’s Pélleas et Mélisande (Brazil) as well as Junius in Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia (USA), Ford in Verdi’s Falstaff (USA & Brazil) , Lescaut in Puccini’s Manon Lescaut(USA),Tonio in Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci (USA),Germont in Verdi’s La Traviata (France & USA), and most recently Figaro in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (USA & Uruguay) .

In June of 2010, Mr. Vieira had the honor of making his San Francisco Opera debut in the role of Happy in Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West. In the Fall of 2011 Mr. Vieira was invited back to the San Francisco Opera stage in the role of Gubetta in Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia with Renee Fleming. This production of Lucrezia Borgia has recently been commercially released in video by the EuroArts label to critical acclaim.

Mr. Vieira is a world finalist of the 1995 Luciano Pavarotti Voice Competition in Philadelphia, a recipient of the Margareth Tudor Award (Princeton) for two consecutive years and the Kaplan Foundation Award (Kansas City) for outstanding artistry.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
