Richard TroxellActor

Tenor Richard Troxell’s beautiful lyric tenor voice has been thrilling audiences in leading roles in opera houses and concert halls, on television and the big screen around the world for quite some time.
Not your “normal” opera singer, Richard’s career has ranged from the starring role of Pinkerton in Martin Scorcese’s Sony Film of Madama Butterfly to being a recurring guest with Jimmy Fallon , to climbing out of the sewers of Seville as Don Jose at the Sydney Opera House in Carmen, to singing the National Anthem for MLB’s ALCS championship opener to being a dwarf at Avery Fisher Hall in Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg. This past year Richard enjoyed great success with Vancouver Opera’s production of Carmen as well as 2 productions of the same in Toronto. The 2013 season included Opera de Montreal’s production of Manon with only 2 days notice, filling in at the last minute as Des Grieux, Galileo in Philipp Glass’ Galileo Galilei with Cincinnati Opera, a concert at Teatro del Lago in Chile, followed by La Boheme with Opera Tampa and ended with performances with the NYC Opera in the North American debut of the Covent Garden production of Anna Nicole. His 2012 season began in Bari, Italy at the Teatro Petruzelli with Maestro Lorin Maazel in Carmen followed by Romeo and Juliet with Palm Beach Opera, followed by a West Coast Premiere and CD Recording as Galileo in Philipp Glass’ Galileo Galilei with the Portland Opera and ended nicely with Hawaii Opera Theater’s production of Die Fledermaus. In the summer of 2012 Mr. Troxell went from La Boheme in Vt. to Carmen again with Maestro Maazel with the Castleton Festival to Madama Butterfly in Taipei with Opera Australia, to another Madama Butterfly for the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice to Carmen with Julie Nesrallah of CBC radio’s Tempo in Ottawa to Camden Yards for a National Anthem with the Baltimore Orioles. He likes to keep it interesting.
