Tenor Michael Slattery is renowned among singers for his interpretive originality and his voice of purity and power, described by the New York Times as “the balance of the elemental and ethereal.” He made his New York Philharmonic debut singing the Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings on Benjamin Britten’s 100th birthday. His new English translation of Bach's St. John Passion (commissioned by MasterVoices) was performed at Carnegie Hall for the 75th anniversary celebration of Robert Shaw's Collegiate Chorale.

Recent projects include the world premieres of two roles expressly written for him, Miles in Missy Mazzoli and Royce Vavrek’s Proving Up, and Daft Jamie in Julian Grant and Mark Campbell’s Burke & Hare.
Career highlights include the title role in Bernstein’s Candide in London, Rome and Warsaw, and concerts with New York Philharmonic, New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia Orchestra, French National Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, and leading roles at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, the Staatsoper in Berlin, the Opéra de Lyon, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, and the Edinburgh, Spoleto, Holland, Athens and Aspen Music Festivals.
