Eric Cutler

Biography

American tenor Eric Cutler's debut recital on EMI Classics was named Editor's Choice in the May edition of Opera News. This program of Schumann, Hahn, Liszt and Barber was praised by the Opera News critic for "the young Iowan's palpable artistry [and] uniquely thoughtful musicianship, all the more interesting when clothed in a distinctive, red-blooded voice." 
In the 2005/6 season, Eric Cutler returns to the Metropolitan Opera for Tamino in Die Zauberflöte conducted by Paul Daniel and Andres in Wozzeck under James Levine.  He makes his debut at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden in his first performances of Ernesto in Don Pasquale.  Another important role debut is as Gounod’s Romeo in his return to Opera Australia.  He debuts at the Teatro Real, Madrid as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail.  An equally distinguished concert season sees him making recital debuts at London’s Wigmore Hall and at New York’s Weill Recital Hall.  He also sings Mozart’s Requiem under the baton of Christoph von Dohnanyi in a return to the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Eric Cutler sings for the first time at Flanders Opera.
