The Grammy Award-winning American baritone, who premiered Joby Talbot’s The Diving Bell and the Butterfly at TDO earlier this season, is internationally acknowledged as one of today’s leading operatic artists. The 2019/2020 season included Meachem’s performances in Roméo et Juliette at San Francisco Opera, Don Giovanni and The Queen of Spades at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Carmen at Turin’s Teatro Regio, plus the Richard Tucker Foundation Gala at Carnegie Hall. Meachem recently triumphed at The Minnesota Opera singing his first Athanaël/Thaïs. Closely associated with Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, and the Metropolitan Opera, he has also starred at every other major American house. European appearances have been highlighted by the title roles/The Barber of Seville (Vienna, London, Oslo), Don Giovanni (Glyndebourne, Dresden), Billy Budd (Paris), and Eugene Onegin (Berlin, Montpellier); multiple roles at the Teatro Real Madrid; and Robert/Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta in a five-city tour with Anna Netrebko. Meachem has also portrayed Wolfram/Tannhäuser at Japan’s Saito Kinen Festival. Additional successes include appearances with the major orchestras of Montreal, Prague, Rome, New York, and San Francisco.
