About this Artist
Renowned not only for his luxurious voice, confidence, and style, but also for his versatility and ability to bring a character to life, bass-baritone Kyle Albertson is taking the business by storm. This season sees Albertson join Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil for Das Rheingold, the Dallas Opera for Elektra, Pittsburgh Opera for Der fliegende Holländer, along with rejoining Virginia Opera for Siegfried. In 2024, Albertson returns to the Dallas Symphony for its standalone performances of Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, and Siegfried, as well as its full Ring Cycle, led by Fabio Luisi. Last season’s engagements included Wotan in Die Walküre for Virginia Opera, a return to the Metropolitan Opera for its new production of Don Giovanni, and Prometheus in Die Vögel with Pacific Opera Victoria.
Albertson made his European debut at Opera Köln as Frank Maurrant in Street Scene and he returned to Opera Graz for its 2021/22 season, performing the title role in Der fliegende Holländer in more than a dozen performances, as well as Wotan in concert performances of Loriot’s Der Ring an einem Abend. Additionally, he returned to the Metropolitan Opera as Angelotti in Tosca, sang Wotan in Das Rheingold for both Virginia Opera and Opera Santa Barbara, and debuted the title role in Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle with Opera Roanoke.
Kyle first joined the Metropolitan Opera roster for Don Giovanni and returned for five consecutive seasons in productions of Le nozze di Figaro, Die Zauberflöte, Dialogues des Carmélites, The Merry Widow, and Manon. His 2020 and 2021 Metropolitan Opera engagements were to include covering the title role in Der fliegende Holländer, Claggart in Billy Budd, and Kurwenal in Tristan und Isolde. He was also slated to make his role debuts as Jochanaan in Salome and Pizarro in Fidelio.
