Peter Volpe

Praised for his “stentorian” and “robust bass” by the New York Times, venerable American bass Peter Volpe continually receives critical and popular acclaim across four continents for his powerful command and the rich texture of his timbre. Possessing a vast and ever-expanding repertoire of over 90 roles in six languages in a career encompassing more than 35 years, his captivating style and interpretive skill embraces the depth of every historical and fictional character he embodies. Of his recent portrayal of Prince Gremin in Eugene Onegin for the Spoleto Festival USA, Opera News applauded his ability “to create in his single aria and scene an impressive dignity. His full-bodied bass and great candor of tone, together with his intelligent interpretation, won him a well-deserved ovation.” Recently, Volpe performed in Don Carlos with Washington National Opera, Judge Turpin in Christopher Alden’s production of Sweeney Todd at the Glimmerglass Festival, a role he also performed with New Orleans Opera, Daland in Der fliegende Holländer with Austin Opera, and Basilio in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Florentine Opera.
