Reader Submission: Brandon Coleman

Brandon Coleman
We've had two readers suggest that we add Brandon Coleman to the site and from the looks of that six-pack, he seems way overdue. He's currently performing the role of the Mandarin in Puccini's Turandot at the Opera Company of Middlebury in Vermont. Performances run through June 6th.

In 2011, he made his international debut as a guest artist singing the role of Sarastro in Mozart's Die Zauberflote with the Tuscia Opera Festival under the baton of Maestro Stefano Vignati. 

This season, he's been featured in The Beth Morrison Projects' The Difficulty of Crossing a Field National Tour, Mephistopheles in Gounod's Faust with Tri-Cities Opera and Porgy & Bess at Syracuse Opera. Upcoming performances included Bartolo in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro with Kentucky Opera from May 20-24, 2016 and Ferrando in Verdi's Il Trovatore with the Hawaii Opera Theatre.

Previously he's appeared as Jesus in The Seven Last Words, Raimondo in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, Fred in Smokey Joe's Cafe, Angelotti in Puccini's Tosca, Ibn Hakia in Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, and Parsons in Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen.

Coleman, who is based in Washington, D.C., received his Bachelors of Music degree from the University of Hartford Hartt School of Music.
