American Baritone Jeff Mattsey is known worldwide for the roles that have defined his international career. He made his operatic stage debut at the age of 21 as Marcello opposite Luciano Pavarotti in the Opera Company of Philadelphia production of La Boheme. Since that time he has made appearances with such companies as the Metropolitan Opera, the San Diego Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Vancouver Opera, Opera di Genova, Deutsche Oper Berlin, New York City Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and many more. A versatile actor, Mr Mattsey is at ease in both comic and dramatic works, from Figaro in the Barber and Marriage of Figaro to Sharpless in Butterfly or Papa Germont in La Traviata. Of a recent performance, the San Diego Tribune says, "Baritone Jeff Mattsey was an extraordinary Marcello: extraordinary because he created a character so rich and textured with so little apparent effort - and sang the role with such an outpouring of warm, burnished sound..."
