Tenor John Pickle quickly has established himself as a strong tenor, most recently for his portrayals of Erik in Der fliegende Holländer, a role he débuted with Los Angeles Opera. Of a performance as the jilted hunter with Lyric Opera of Kansas City, The Kansas City Star raved, “Pickle’s emotionally wrought characterization drove this [performance] even harder home than usual.” In recent seasons, Pickle also enjoyed performances as Erik with Mobile Opera, Utah Festival Opera, and Michigan Opera Theatre. This season, Pickle performs Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Pacific Symphony, sings Don José in Carmen with Opera Louisiane, and performs as a soloist in Eugene Suchon’s Psalm of the Carpathian Land with Sonomento and the Kenwood Symphony, in Kodaly’s Te Deum with Oregon Music Festival, and in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Dayton Opera and Springfield Symphony.
