Greer Grimsley announces the 2014-2015 Season and beyond!August 20, 2014 - 13:12
Having performed the role of John the Baptist in Salome with San Francisco Opera, San Diego Opera, Santa Fe Opera, and Vancouver Opera, Greer is excited to be making his Dallas Opera debut this season with Deborah Voigt in the title role. The San Francisco Chronicle exclaimed: "Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley was a thunderous and dramatically compelling Jokanaan. Grimsley invested the part with rhetorical strength and an air of moral solidity - the perfect antithesis to Salome's eroticized jitters."
Other engagements this season include Jack Rance in La fanciulla del West with Minnesota Opera, a return to Seattle Opera as Scarpia in Tosca, the High Priest in Samson et Dalilah with Atlanta Symphony, and his long awaited debut as the sadistically demonic barber, Sweeney Todd for Vancouver Opera!
Future seasons through 2017 will include returns to the Metropolitan Opera, New National Theatre Tokyo, Gran Teatre del Liceu, San Francisco Opera, Seattle Opera, San Diego Opera, as well as a debut with the Ravinia Festival.
