Vocalist - Baritone

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 returns 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, and makes his Chautauqua Opera debut in summer of 2015 as the title role in Eugene Onegin.

“Baritone Matthew Worth was a communicative storyteller in his ‘Springtime’ song, ‘Omnia Sol temperat’ (All things are tempered) and other solos…. His exuberant characterization of the Abbot, punctuated by raucous percussion, made the audience laugh out loud.”

Stephen Hartke's The Greater Good was commissioned by Glimmerglass Opera, and is a strikingly original contribution to the operatic repertory. Based on an iconic short story by Maupassant set during the immediate aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War, The Greater Good is notable for its sure-footed dramatic pacing and astute use of different techniques and subtle references to a variety of musical styles in order to portray the characters in a variety of moods and situations. This is the opera's world premiere recording.
