Bille Bruley

Praised by the Huffington Post for his “ringing high notes,” Texas-born tenor Bille Bruley has garnered attention for his strength and versatility in operatic repertoire from baroque to contemporary. A 2018-19 William Matheus Sullivan Musical Foundation Award and Career Grant winner, Bille recently finished his second year with the Marion Roose Pullin Arizona Opera Studio, where his assignments included Louis Sullivan in Shining Brow, Bern Venters in Riders of the Purple Sage, and Brighella and Bacchus (cover) in Ariadne auf Naxos. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of Bille's 2020-21 season has been postponed to future seasons. Future seasons include debuts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Colorado Symphony, as well as Austin Opera, The Atlanta Opera, and Lyric Opera of Kansas City. In the 2019-2020 season, Mr. Bruley makes a number of exciting house debuts, including engagements with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis as Sam Polk in a new production of Floyd’s Susannah (CANCELLED) and the Lyric Opera of Chicago, where he will cover Father Grenville and Howard Boucher in Heggie’s Dead Man Walking. He will also make his New York recital debut singing Janacek’s The Diary of One Who Disappeared at the 92nd Street Y alongside Jennifer Johnson Cano. This summer, Mr. Bruley performs with the Phoenix Symphony in a program of Mozart arias and makes his return to the Santa Fe Opera, where he will create the role of Benjamin in the world premiere of Poul Ruders’ The Thirteenth Child and cover the role of Laca Klemen in Janacek’s Jenufa.
