The Marriage of Figaro
Bass Eric Jordan has been sought by opera companies for his trademark “big bass and presence to match” (Opera News). His voice is described as possessing “a resonant, ringing tone…” (St Louis Post-Dispatch), and the New York Times opines that his “powerful, nuanced singing and thoughtful acting amounted to a wholly remarkable portrayal.”
His first projects with the Metropolitan Opera in productions of Don Carlo, Magic Flute and Pelléas et Mélisande and with Dallas Opera as Friar Laurence in Romeo and Juliette. He appeared at Bob Jones University as Mephistopheles in Faust, in a re-engagement to the Cesky Krumlov Festival as Leporello in Don Giovanni, Alidoro in La Cenerentola with the Belleayre Music Festival, and a Verdi Requiem in Connecticut. He sang Bruckner’s Te Deum at the Spoleto Festival and was the soloist in Stabat Mater in the Cesky Krumlov.
Right before his second season at the Metropolitan Opera, he suffered a major stroke. Despite of this, he was part of the productions of Don Carlo, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Carmen, and Eugene Onegin at the Metropolitan Opera and was part of the production of Aspern Papers at the Dallas Opera. As a professional hiatus, he enrolled into Queens University to study music therapy.
