The Australian tenor, one of the most promising among the younger generation of artists internationally, had his U.S. concert debut at TDO in the 2015 Titus Art Song Recital Series and his U.S. operatic debut the following year in Cold Mountain at Opera Philadelphia, and his European debut at the highly prestigious Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro in the fiendishly difficult role of Cavaliere Belfiore/Il viaggio a Reims. Kent’s burgeoning reputation in Rossini has included performances as Count Almaviva/The Barber of Seville (Basel), Argirio/Tancredi (Bari), Lindoro/L’italiana in Algeri (Montpellier, Toulon, Budapest), Don Ramiro/La cenerentola (Portland), and Mambre/Mosè in Egitto (Naples). He is featured as Prince Frederic in the world-premiere recording of Poul Ruders’s new opera The Thirteenth Child, released on Bridge Records. The tenor is a recipient of the Marten Bequest by the Australia Council, one of Australia’s most important artistic awards. Kent is a graduate of Philadelphia’s Academy of Vocal Arts and an alumnus of Opera Philadelphia’s Emerging Artist Program, the Merola Opera program, the Lisa Gasteen National Opera School, and Wolf Trap Opera’s Filene Young Artist program.
