Based in Toronto, Canadian baritone Michael Robert-Broder has been praised as a singer equally at home with art song, oratorio, and opera.
On the stage, he has recently portrayed the roles of Scarpia in Tosca, Il Conte in Le Nozze di Figaro, Sprecher in Die Zauberflöte, Duke Bluebeard, Peter in Hansel and Gretel, and Don Pizarro in Fidelio.
Engagements scheduled for the 2020/21 concert season included Bizet’s Carmen, Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle, Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux, Strauss’ Elektra, Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, Bach Cantatas, Handel’s Messiah, and Barber’s The Lovers. Current public health measures have necessitated the cancelation or postponement of that aforementioned season.
Upcoming engagements include Beethoven’s Mass in C with the Toronto Mozart Project and a recording of Handel’s Messiah with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra.
