Isaiah Bell

The New York Times described tenor Isaiah Bell in the role of the Madwoman in Britten’s Curlew Riveras “a performance of haunting beauty, ideally depicting emotional distraction with ultimate economy and glowing vocal skill.” The Canadian-American is “a singer to watch, not just for his attractive stage presence, but for his elegant tenor” (La Scena Musicale).

Highlights of his upcoming season include the role of Lechmere in Britten’s Owen Wingrave (under Mark Wigglesworth at the Edinburgh Festival), George Benjamin’s Written on Skin conducted by the composer with the Toronto Symphony,Mozart’s Requiem with the Colorado Symphony under Pinchas Zukerman, andBerlioz’s Roméo et Juliette and the Honegger/Ibert opera L’Aiglon, both with Kent Nagano and l’Orchestre symphonique de Montréal. He will also sing with the New Jersey Symphony,the Vancouver Symphony and San Francisco’s Opera Parallèle, among others.

Recent appearances include Bach’s Matthew Passion with Yannick Nézét-Séguin and l’Orchestre Métropolitain, a recital of German and English song broadcast on CBC Radio’s “In Concert,” Ferrando in Così fan tutte with Jeunesses Musicales, a staged Messiah with Against the Grain Theatre,and William Walton’s Façade with l’Orchestre symphonique de Montréal.
