Q&A with Bass Baritone Donovan Singletary

Updated: Nov 5, 2019

Currently starring as Jake in The Metropolitan Opera's 'Porgy and Bess,' the acclaimed artist returns to Fort Worth in 2020 as Colline in Puccini's La Bohème. Praised by Opera News for his "bright baritone," DFW audiences will remember him as General Achillas in Julius Caesar and Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro.

A: "Fort Worth Opera has always been a fun and daring company that thinks outside of the box and has groomed great artists - being back in Texas is definitely beyond exciting! The Fort Worth family has been a part of my life since my undergraduate studies and continues to support me on my journey.

It can't be valued enough being able to perform with a company that treats you like family and makes you feel like you're at home. I have some really fond memories singing here and I've met some great people that have been integral in my life to this day. Let the good times roll...AGAIN!"

Q: Do you have any advice for young singers who are looking to carve out a career within the opera world?

A: "Individuality is important for success in creative fields and opera is no exception. We're all highly trained professionals that get caught up in everything that's going on around us and we forget why we fell in love with the art form and performing in the first place. Your personal growth is going to be one of the major keys in how well you do in the business and in life.

Be a real person seeking true, personal growth and your artistry will start to reach levels where you can't be denied and no one can take anything away from you. Nurture other aspects of who you are and most importantly...remember the Music."
