David Cushing

David Cushing's versatile bass-baritone range is effortlessly demonstrated in a variety of roles including recent appearances in the title roles of Don Pasquale and Le nozze di Figaro, Frère Laurent in Roméo et Juliette, and Bottom inA Midsummer Night's Dream. Of a recent performance, the Boston Herald exclaimed, "his portrayal of hoodwinked old Pasquale, filled with pathos and unself-conscious humor, was a revelation. He could easily specialize in Italian opera's wealth of foolish-old-man roles and become the basso buffo of his generation." This season, Mr. Cushing will return to Boston Lyric Opera for their production of The Threepenny Opera, as Angelotti in Tosca and Donald in The Nefarious, Immoral But Highly Profitable Enterprise of Mr. Burke & Mr. Hare, sings the title role of Don Pasquale  with Bar Harbor Music Festival, performs Banquo in Macbeth and reprises the role of Basilio in Il barbiere di Siviglia  with Opera Tampa, Sun Tze in the world première of Rev. 23 with White Snake Projects, and Tiresias in Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex  with Emmanuel Music.
