Hailed by the New York Times for a voice that is "fully powered and persuasively expressive”, Matthew Worth is quickly becoming the baritone of choice for innovative productions and contemporary works on the operatic leading edge. In 2013 he created the role of Father Flynn in the world premiere of Doubt at Minnesota Opera. The Pioneer Press raved, “Matthew Worth matches her [soprano Christine Brewer as Sister Aloysius] with a note-perfect performance as Father Flynn. A baritone asked to traverse a tremendous expanse in this role, both musically and in characterization, Worth makes him complex and fascinating, charismatic and conflicted." He will return to Minnesota Opera in the 2014-2015 season as Sergeant Raymond Shaw in the world premiere of The Manchurian Candidate, the second opera from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts and librettist Mark Campbell.
