Headshot of baritone Schyler Vargas


This fall, Schyler will be joining UrbanArias for a world premiere of UNKNOWN, a dramatic song cycle composed by Shawn Okpebholo with poems by Marcus Amaker honoring the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery. Earlier in 2021, Schyler made his Opera Theatre of Saint Louis debut after joining the prestigious Gerdine Young Artist Program and later this summer he will be joining Cincinnati Opera for their reimagined centennial season. Previously, he has been seen in main stage roles at The Atlanta Opera, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, The Glimmerglass Opera Festival, Dayton Opera, and the Château de Versailles Spectacles in France. He was set to make house debuts with the Teatro Lirico di Cagliari in Italy and the Teatro Municipal de Santiago in Chile before the Covid-19 pandemic.
