Internationally acclaimed tenor, Jesus Garcia, has been praised by the press for his “soaring vocalism” and his “dynamic stage presence”. He specializes in the romantic roles of the French and Italian repertoires.
Critically acclaimed appearances of the recent past include Mr. Garcia’s debut in the title role of Gounod’s FAUST at the Savonlinna Opera Festival in Finland under the baton of Philippe Auguin, COUNT ALMAVIVA in Rosetta Cucchi’s production of “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” with Boston Lyric Opera, and RODOLFO in “La Boheme” with Tampere Talo in Finland.
“His Italian-like colorful voice was capable of anything. He mastered the highest notes. It feels like Garcia doesn’t just settle for acting, instead he lives the role. Jesus Garcia is probably the best Faust in the history of the Savonlinna Opera festival.”
–Itä-Savo, Finland, July 2018
“As Count Almaviva, Jesus Garcia was on fire from the beginning, unleashing beautifully ardent paeans to Rosina in his elegant voice and throwing himself wholly into his various disguises as drunken soldier and obsequious music teacher.”
– The Boston Globe, October 2018
Other recent guest engagements brought Jesus Garcia’s debut as GIASONE in Cherubini’s “Medea” under the baton of Jane Glover at Opera Omaha, as well as his return to Nederlandse Reisopera as ALFREDO in Floris Visser’s production of “La Traviata”, and his return to the Badisches Staatstheater for the title part of TITO in Mozart’s “La Clemenza di Tito.” Garcia also recently appeared at The Wexford Festival as ENRICO in Fabio Ceresa’s new production of Donizetti’s seldom performed opera “Maria de Rudenz”; as NADIR with the Nederlandse Reisopera and the Carré Theater in Amsterdam; as ALFREDO under the baton of Lawrence Foster at the Savonlinna Opera Festival; as RODOLFO in Puccini’s “La Bohème” directed by Rosetta Cucchi at the Boston Lyric Opera; as well as MACDUFF in “Macbeth”, PYLADES in Gluck’s “Iphigenie en Tauride”, TEBALDO in Bellini’s “I Capuleti e i Montecchi”, and NEMORINO in “L’Elisir d’Amore” directed by Jacopo Spirei at the Badisches Staatstheater.
