Bass, Jeremy Harr, has been described by El Nuovo Herald as “astounding” and praised by The Sentinel for his “resonance, power and assurance.” For the 2020 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, Harr was named a winner in the Capitol District and 3rd Place in the Middle-Atlantic Region. As a 2020/21 Resident Artist at Pittsburgh Opera, Harr performed Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte and Cadmus/Somnus in Semele. Additional season engagements include debuts with Opera NexGen as Don Alfonso and Berkshire Opera Festival as Pistola in Falstaff, as well as returning to Wolf Trap Opera to cover Death in Gustav Holst’s Sāvitri and Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd. Other role highlights include Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro), Dulcamara (L’elisir d’amore), Basilio (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Frank Maurrant (Street Scene), Ramfis (Aida), Gremin (Eugene Onegin), Collatinus (The Rape of Lucretia), King of Scotland (Ariodante), Superintendent Budd (Albert Herring), Pandolfe (Cendrillon) and Simone (Gianni Schicchi).
