Noted for his “compellingly sung” performances employing “a rich variety of colors” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), tenor David Evans is a versatile singing actor exploring the frontiers of the Western musical canon. Recent operatic roles include Chevalier de Danceny (Conrad Susa, The Dangerous Liaisons), Brother Jean (Justine F. Chen, Jeanne), Artemidoro (Salieri, La grotta di Trofonio), Tancredi (Monteverdi, Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda), and Maese Pedro (Falla, El retablo de Maese Pedro). David enjoys an ongoing association with Boston Early Music Festival, beginning in 2013 when he joined the mainstage cast of Handel’s Almira as a member of BEMF’s Young Artist Training Program. Since, he has assisted Opera Director Gilbert Blin on three productions (Monteverdi’s Ulisse, Handel’s Acis and Galatea, the pastiche Versailles) and rejoined the BEMF mainstage cast in June 2017 for Campra’s Le carnaval de Venise.
