Chris Lysack

Tenor
Bio: Canadian tenor Chris Lysack brings a vast and unorthodox skill set to his craft. Initially having received his formal training at Indiana University as a concert pianist (Doctor of Music) and a literary scholar (PhD, French Literature) before completing his vocal studies at Manhattan School of Music, he is uniquely positioned to approach the most challenging repertoire with intellectual rigor and refined musicianship of the highest caliber. In the past few seasons, the "intrepid, individual artist" (Opera Now) has performed as a leading tenor throughout Europe, including at the Staatsoper Hamburg, Landestheater Salzburg, Theater Osnabrück, Theater Aachen, Stadttheater Bern, and the Theater Bremen, site of his "sensational début" (Opernglas) in 2014 as Walther von Stolzing in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Lysack has performed a broad cross-section of the repertoire, ranging from the title roles in Lohengrin, Les contes d'Hoffmann, and Peter Grimes, to such favorites as Florestan (Fidelio) and Cavaradossi (Tosca), and to lesser-known modern works, including York Höller's Der Meister und Margarita and Brett Dean's Bliss. The versatile tenor also has a particular interest in Czech music, having achieved acclaim as the Prince (Rusalka) and Laca Klemeň (Jenůfa), as well as in Janáček's song cycle Zápisník zmizelého. In 2014, Lysack received a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts for language study and role preparation in the Czech Republic.
