Morris Robinson is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the most interesting and sought after basses performing today. A graduate of the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, he made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in their production of Fidelio.
He has since appeared there as Sarastro in The Magic Flute (both in the original production and in a new children’s English version), the King in Aida and in roles in Nabucco, Tannhäuser and new productions of Les Troyens and Salome.
He has also appeared at the Dallas Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Opera Company of Philadelphia, Seattle Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Opera Theater of St. Louis, the Wolf Trap Opera, and the Aix-en-Provence Festival.
In the 2016/17 season, he returned to the Metropolitan Opera as Sarastro in The Magic Flute and to LA Opera as Osmin in The Abduction from the Seraglio. Recent appearances include a return to LA Opera as Oroveso in Norma, returns to the Houston Grand Opera in both Otello and The Magic Flute, Opera Philadelphia as the Grand Inquisitor in Don Carlos, and the Atlanta Opera in Rigoletto.
