Scott Lindroth, baritone, was recently praised as “sonorous” and “a highlight” by Opera News. His upcoming engagements include Mr. Slender in Salieri’s Falstaff with Dell’arte Opera, Jack Highstraw in Richard Pearson Thomas’ new opera A Wake or a Wedding, Top (cover) in Chelsea Opera’s The Tender Land, Handel’s Messiah with the Metro Chamber Orchestra, and a recital tour with Muses Opera.
Last season, Mr. Lindroth was an Apprentice Artist with Sarasota Opera, joining the company for their performances of Les pêcheurs de perles, Of Mice and Men, Un Giorno di Regno and Turandot. He also portrayed the roles of Sharpless from Madame Butterfly and Marcello from La Bohème in their opera scenes programs. This year, Mr. Lindroth is a Resident Artist with Dicapo Opera in New York City, where he performed the role of Belcore in L’elisir d’amore.
Mr. Lindroth’s other operatic roles include Valentin in Faust, Figaro in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Harlequin in Ariadne auf Naxos, Masetto in Don Giovanni, Dancaïro in Carmen, Marcello in La Bohème, Malatesta in Don Pasquale, Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, Marco in Gianni Schicchi and Mandarin in Turandot.
Mr. Lindroth is also an avid proponent of modern opera. He created the role of Kaczynski for the American premiere of All Quiet on the Western Front with the Metro Chamber Orchestra, for which the New York Times commended his “appealing baritone.” Other recent engagements include Der Lautsprecher (cover) in Der Kaiser von Atlantis with Opera Moderne and Chanticleer in The Dwarf with the Vertical Player Repertory.
Mr. Lindroth is equally experienced on the concert stage. He recently appeared as the baritone soloist in Mozart’s Requiem under the baton of Kent Tritle at the Manhattan School of Music. He has also performed major works with the Astoria Symphony, including Saint-Saens’ Oratorio del Noël and Beethoven's Die Ruinen von Athen. Other engagements include Orff’s Carmina Burana, Dubois’ Les sept paroles du Christ and Bach’s Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis.
In competition, Mr. Lindroth placed second in the Opera Theater of Connecticut Voice Competition, and was a finalist in both the Lieder Division of the Liederkranz Vocal Competition and the 2014 Career Bridges Competition.
Mr. Lindroth holds a Master of Music degree from Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Michigan. He currently resides in New York City.
