Bass-barihunk Darren Stokes, who was a chemist before singing opera full-time, is new to the site. He is an alumnus of the Ryan Opera Center of the Lyric Opera of Chicago and was awarded the Leo M. Rogers Scholarship for Outstanding Apprentice at the Sarasota Opera. This season he toured Germany as Crown in Gershwin's Porgy & Bess, a role he reprised that season in Ithica, New York. He made his mainstage debut at the New York City Opera as Sciarrone in Puccini's Tosca and toured as Escamillo with the company throughout Europe and the Middle East.
The cast for Carmen also includes Kate Aldrich in the title role, Kip Wilborn as Don José and the stunning Talise Trevigne as Micaëla. Performances are on October 13, 15 and 17, and tickets are available online.
