Known for his “voluptuous elegant tone,” and a “robust tenor with baritonal heft,” American lyric tenor Joshua Dennis is a star on the rise. Mr. Dennis, a champion of new works, had the honor of originating two roles: Minnesota Opera’s world premiere production of The Fix (“Shoeless” Joe Jackson) and Poul Ruders’ The Thirteenth Child (Prince Frederic) with the Santa Fe Opera. Additionally, he was heard in Huang Rou’s Paradise Interrupted at the MGM Grand in Macau and was the host of Santa Fe Opera’s virtual event Songs from the Santa Fe Opera. Additionally, he performed in the world premiere of Nadia Boulanger’s La ville morte (Leonard) with Catapult Opera.  In the 2022-23 Season, he performed in Opera Colorado’s Rigoletto (Duke of Mantua) and as the tenor soloist in Handel’s Messiah with both the Santa Fe Symphony and Pacific Symphony.
