Preeminent Boston tenor Fran Rogers recently made his Symphony Hall debut this October with the Terezin Music Foundation, singing a collection of songs by Pavel Haas and Gideon Klein. His opera credits include Ruggero in Puccini's La Rondine, Danceny in Susas The Dangerous Liaisons, Ramiro in Rossini's La Cenerentola. Upcoming performances include Art in the world premiere performance of “Triangle” by Tony Solitro, and Rodolfo in Puccinis La Boheme. Fran performs as a regular national anthem soloist for Boston sports teams including the Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots - having performed for millions during several nationally televised performances.
In addition to solo performances across the country and the globe, Fran regularly sings with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops as a member of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and is in his third season as a roster artist with the Boston Opera Collaborative. Fran has received many accolades for his singing, including placing at the Concorso Internazionale di Musica Sacra in Rome, Italy. Fran has been critically acclaimed for his "open, free, and effortless high notes", his "athleticism", and "raw strength and natural timbre" that "in the words of Muhammad Ali, 'float like a butterfly, sting like a bee".
Fran is very excited to debut the role of Art in the world premiere of Tony Solitro’s “Triangle” as part of Boston Opera Collaborative’s Opera Bites, November 10-12, 2018. For tickets: www.bostonoperacollaborative.org
