The Opera Insider, reviewing Scott Lindroth as Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, said he “brought down the house with his creamy baritone and comic presence.” Mr. Lindroth’s operatic roles also include Figaro in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Harlequin in Ariadne auf Naxos, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, Masetto in Don Giovanni, Marcello in La Bohème and Valentin in Faust. He has appeared as a soloist in works such as Orff’s Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Requiem, and most recently in Beethoven's The Ruins of Athens with the Astoria Symphony. Mr. Lindroth is also an avid supporter of modern opera, and will appear as Chanticleer in The Dwarf with Brooklyn’s Vertical Player Repertory in November. In competition, he placed second in the Opera Theater of Connecticut Voice Competition, and was a finalist in the Lieder Division of the Liederkranz Vocal Competition. This season, he will perform the roles of Belcore in L’elisir d’amore and Sharpless in Madama Butterfly as a Resident Artist with Dicapo Opera in New York City.
Equally at home with musical theater, Scott has sung Javert in Les Misérables. He has also performed the roles of Chip in On the Town, and Pasquale in The Most Happy Fella.
Mr. Lindroth received a BM from the University of Michigan in Voice Performance and Music Education, and a Masters from Manhattan School of Music. While being an avid performer, he continues to fulfill his passion for education as a chorus teacher and private voice teacher. Most recently, he led the after-school chorus of Mott Hall II in New York City, and he often has the opportunity to coach young singers at the Precollege Division of the Manhattan School of Music. This summer, he will be a voice instructor at the Manhattan School of Music Summer Camp.
