This foray into baroque repertoire is a switch for Preisser, who has recently made a name for himself performing newer works. He recently created the role of Lt. Gordon in the world premiere of Kevin Putz’s Pulitzer Prize winning Silent Night with the Minnesota Opera. Preisser will reprise this role with the Opera Company of Philadelphia in February 2013, where he'll be reunited with fellow barihunk Liam Bonner who is singing the role of Lieutenant Audebert.
Liam Bonner sings Lieutenant Audebert's aria "J'ai perdu ta photo" from Silent Night:
Other upcoming engagements include Yamadori with the Orlando Philharmonic, baritone soloist in the Carmina Burana with the Atlanta Ballet, and El Gallo in the Fantasticks with Skylark Opera.
