His 2021-22 engagements include Bottom in Britten’s A Midsummer Night's Dream and Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle with Opera Malmö, Leporello in Mozart’s Don Giovanni in his Scottish Opera debut, and his Opera Tampa debut at the Four Villains in Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffmann. Mr. Altman performs with such companies as Opéra de Lyon, Teatro La Fenice, Hamburg State Opera, Theater Basel, and Opera San Jose (where he was a principal resident artist 2012-14), Virginia Opera, Opera Philadelphia, and Royal Danish Opera. He gave the world premiere of Simon Sargon’s Out of the Depths with Voices of Change in Dallas, a piece expressly written for him. He has also been a young artist with both Fort Worth Opera and Sarasota Opera, and received awards from the Marilyn Horne Foundation and the Metropolitan Opera National Council District Auditions. He received both his graduate and undergraduate degrees from Manhattan School of Music, where his performance as Joe Harland in John Musto’s Later the Same Evening was recorded and released on Albany Records.
