American lyric tenor Andrew Stenson, praised by The Wall Street Journal for a “vivid tenor” that is “both beautiful and full of raw feeling,” is one of the most sought-after vocalists of his generation. A graduate of The Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Program, Stenson left an indelible impression as Danny Chen in the world premiere of An American Soldier with Opera Theater of St. Louis, a performance that The New York Times listed as one of the best of 2018.
Mr. Stenson earned acclaim for his recent performances of Candide, Così fan tutte and The Magic Flute, starring on the stages of The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, The San Francisco Symphony, The Glimmerglass Festival and many other renowned companies.
In 2019, Stenson returns to Utah Opera in 2020 for his role debut as Nikolaus Sprink in Silent Night by Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell, and he also joins The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra as a soloist in Mozart’s Requiem, along with future engagements with Portland Opera and Seattle Opera.
In addition to singing, Andrew regularly enjoys a passion for fine wine and spirits. He holds the credential of Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers, and he is an avid whiskey and wine collector.
