The dynamic American tenor Paul Appleby “is that special singer who puts words first in performing songs,” says the New York Times. Appleby has won fans for his lead roles in Nico Muhly’s Two Boys, Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, and Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande at the Metropolitan Opera, and here in the Bay Area, he played the lovesick miner Joe Cannon in the world premiere production of John Adams’ and Peter Sellars’ Girls of the Golden West at San Francisco Opera. 

Wherever he performs, Appleby’s interpretations mine the soaring power, delicate beauty, and buoyant energy of the tenor repertoire. Passionate about song, Appleby, accompanied by pianist Conor Hanick, presents an impressive program featuring Schumann and Schubert songs, Berg’s Altenberg Lieder (traditionally performed by a mezzo-soprano), and Beethoven’s celebrated lone song cycle, An die ferne Geliebte.
