Former Governor’s School student Seth Carico, International opera singer, currently enjoys a busy performance schedule.
From his website:
Hailed by Opera News as “powerful in both voice and bearing” and particularly noted for his commanding stage presence and expressive vocalism, bass-baritone Seth Carico is distinguishing himself as an accomplished young American singer. Opera Today praised “the dynamic presence of Carico, whose ringing baritone gave much pleasure.” He effortlessly capitalizes on his dramatic training, bringing a unique sensitivity to operatic characters at disparate ends of the theatrical spectrum. During the 2016-2017 season, Carico made several important role debuts with the Deutsche Oper Berlin, where he has been in the Ensemble since 2012, including Saint-Bris in Les Huguenots, The Traveler, et al. in Graham Vick’s new production of Death in Venice, Gunther in Götterdämmerung, Redburn in Billy Budd, and Andrew Cunanan in the world premiere of Brandt Brauer Frick’s electronic opera Gianni. The 2017-2018 season sees him appearing as The Father in the world premiere of Aribert Reimann’s L’invisible, Oberthal in Le Prophete, Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro, Metifio in L’arlesiana, and the Police Commissioner in Lady Macbeth from Mtsensk, all with Deutsche Oper Berlin. He can also be seen as Joseph de Rocher in Dead Man Walking with Minnesota Opera and Nick Shadow in The Rake’s Progress with Theater Basel.
In the summer of 2012, Seth joined the prestigious Merola Opera Program at San Francisco Opera Center, finishing years of successful apprenticeships with companies such as Deutsche Oper Berlin, Teatro Regio Torino, Fort Worth Opera, Michigan Opera Theatre, Nashville Opera, Lake George Opera, and Chautauqua Opera. Featured early roles include Olin Blitch in Susannah, Kecal in Prodaná Nevěsta, Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte, Seneca in L’incoronazione di Poppea, Colline in La bohème, and Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia. Seth won Fourth Prize in the Shreveport Opera Singer of the Year competition, the Grand Prize of the Orpheus National Vocal Competition, and an Encouragement Award from the Chautauqua Opera Guild.
