Michael Marcotte, originally from Grand Forks, North Dakota, can officially call himself a New Yorker, having survived in Manhattan for over a decade now while loving every minute of it. He is ridiculously giddy to be reuniting with the unbelievably talented, world premiere cast, crew and creatives of Dog Days as they take this show on the road! In 2013 Michael made his LA Philharmonic debut with the world premiere of Strip Mall, a mini-opera by composer Matt Marks and librettist Royce Vavrek; he is also collaborating with Mr. Marks on a new opera-theater piece inspired by the life of Mata Hari, the exotic dancer executed for espionage during World War I. Michael made his New York Philharmonic debut in Carousel in 2013 and also made his New York City Opera debut in 2011 singing the Irish Tenor in Séance on a Wet Afternoon, the first opera penned by composer Stephen Schwartz. He debuted at the Irish Repertory Theatre in New York (off-Broadway) as yet another mournful Irish folk singer in The Piper (music/lyrics: Marcus Hummon; directed by Michael Bush). Other credits include: NYCO Vox’s Vinkensport (“Hans Sachs’ Trainer”; composer: David T. Little; librettist: Royce Vavrek) and, for City Center Encores!, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (directed by John Rando), Bells Are Ringing (directed by Kathleen Marshall), Anyone Can Whistle (“John”; directed by Casey Nicholaw) and Music in the Air (“Town Crier/Hans the Goat Boy”; directed by Gary Griffin). Regional credits include the world premiere of Séance... for Opera Santa Barbara (directed by Scott Schwartz); Snapshots at the Lyric Theatre of OK (directed by Richard Maltby, Jr.); Henrik in A Little Night Music; A Christmas Carol at The Guthrie. Thank you to David, Royce, Robert, Alan and cast along with everyone at Beth Morrison Projects for your extraordinary vision, dedication and generosity; you inspire me beyond measure and truly define for me what an artist can and should be.
