Andrew Wilkowske—when singing a “virile, sturdy Marcello” or a “garrulous yet endearing Papageno” —displays an engaging combination of musical talent and masterful stage presence. Wilkowske, whose voice has been described as “nimble,” with an “impressively open top,” is one of the most versatile performers on the stage today.

equally able to access a character’s pathos and humor to bring to life
the layered complexity of the operatic world’s most endearing personas.
