Praised by Opera News for “high notes with ease, singing with a luxuriant warm glow that seduced the ear as he bounded about the stage with abandon,” American tenor David Portillo has established himself as a leading classical singer of his generation. In the 2021-2022 season, David Portillo will perform Lurcanio in Ariodante with the Palau des les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia, Spain and Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Opéra de Lille and Tamino in Die Zauberflöte with Pittsburgh Opera. A wonderful recitalist, David Portillo has collaborated with pianist Craig Terry for appearances with Vocal Arts DC and the Cleveland Art Song Festival. Projects for 22/23 include Tamino in The Magic Flute at the Metropolitan Opera, Nadir in The Pearl Fishers with Austin Opera and Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni in Osaka, Japan. He will also present a recital as part of the Source Song Festival in Minneapolis.
