Praised for his “masterful acting” and “fine singing,” American tenor Ethan DePuy brings his unique dramatic style to works ranging from the Baroque era to now.

His list of credits includes Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore, Peter Quint in The Turn of the Screw, Alfred in Die Fledermaus, the title role in Albert Herring, Don Basilio in Le nozze di Figaro, Jaquino in Fidelio, King Kaspar in Amahl and the Night Visitors, Chevalier de la Force in Dialogues of the Carmelites, and Motel the Tailor in Fiddler on the Roof.
Mr. DePuy has also established himself as a force to be reckoned with on the concert stage, where highlights of recent seasons include performances of Bach’s St. Matthew Passionand Easter Oratorio, Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Mozart’s Requiem, Solemn Vespers, and Coronation Mass, Schubert’s Mass in G, Haydn’s Seven Last Words, Rachmaninoff’s All Night Vigil, Stravinsky’s Mass, Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri, and the Evangelist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.
