Praised for his “steely power” and “resonant bass," bass-baritone Leo Radosavljevic is a presence on the operatic stage. Most recently Radosavljevic performed Peter Maxwell Davies’ tour de force and one-man show, Eight Songs for a Mad King at the Meredith Wilson Theater at Lincoln Center, as part of Carnegie Hall’s "Dancing on the Precepice: The Fall of the Weimar Republic" festival. He also performed the roles of Janitor, Policeman, and Second Son in Shostakovich’s The Nose with Chicago Opera Theater, and covered the roles of Narrator and Orpheus in Jason and the Argonauts with the Lyric Opera of Chicago. He has also been heard at Opera Colorado as Bonze in Madama Butterfly; the New Philharmonic as Don Alfonso in Così fan Tutte; Opera Theater of Saint Louis as Manders in Regina; Teatro Nuovo as Orbazzano in Tancredi; the Savannah Voice Festival as Colline in La Bohème; and covered the role of the King in Aida with Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

On the concert stage, he has appeared as soloist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Metropolis Symphony, The Orchestra Now, New Juilliard Ensemble, and Juilliard415, with which he performed Telemann’s rarely heard Die Tageszeiten to high acclaim, as well as made a studio recording in Vancouver with the Canadian Broadcasting Company. He has also appeared regularly as recitalist at the Ravinia Festival, where he was twice a Steans fellow, and at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Radosavljevic was the third prize winner of the eighth Klaudia Taev Competition in Estonia, grand prize winner of the 2017 Bel Canto Competition, was a regional finalist in the 2020 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, a finalist at the 18th International Schumann Competition in Zwickau, and the recipient of the Marcella Kochańska Sembrich Award from the American Council for Polish Culture. In 2024 Radosavljevic received the Esther Korshin award from the Oratorio Society of New York, and was one of the grant winners at the 31st annual New York Wagner Society competition this May.

2024 summer highlights include a residency at the White Lake Chamber Music Festival in Michigan, and performing the role of Vassal in Act III of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood.

Radosavljevic received his bachelors and masters of music degrees from the Juilliard School.
