Vocalist - Bass

The young American bass Kevin Burdette has already impressed audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with his mellifluous voice and strongly dramatic characterizations. The San Francisco Chronicle called his Leporello in Don Giovanni“a tour de force of vocal splendor and comic timing.” Featured as Stefano in Adès’ The Tempest with the Metropolitan Opera, the DVD on Deutsche Grammophon was awarded a French Diapason d’Or, and the audio recording on Naxos has won a 2014 Grammy Award, “Best Opera Recording.”

“Kevin Burdette, as the pashas’ overseer, Osmin, who starred as Papageno in Opera Grand Rapids’ last production of ‘The Magic Flute,’ makes the comedy a comedy all by himself. Lean and lanky, with a Snidely Whiplash mustache and sneer to match, Burdette, a singer with a subterranean bass voice, turned every spoken line into an opportunity to act it out for more laughs. Anticipating his pleasure when the pasha executes his enemies, Burdette sang ‘O wie will ich triumphieren’ while dancing the Macarena, doing the moonwalk, prancing gangnem style, and singing some of the lowest notes in all of opera.”
