REV. 23—Boston 2017

David Cushing’s versatile bass-baritone range is effortlessly demonstrated in a variety of roles including recent appearances in the title roles of Don Pasquale and Le nozze di Figaro, Frère Laurent in Roméo et Juliette, and Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Of a recent performance, the Boston Herald exclaimed, “his portrayal of hoodwinked old Pasquale, filled with pathos and un-self-conscious humor, was a revelation. He could easily specialize in Italian opera’s wealth of foolish-old-man roles and become the basso buffo of his generation.” This season, Mr. Cushing will return to Boston Lyric Opera as Angelotti in Tosca and Donald in The Nefarious, Immoral But Highly Profitable Enterprise of Mr. Burke & Mr. Hare, sings the title role of Don Pasquale with Bar Harbor Music Festival, performs Banquo in Macbeth and reprises the role of Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Opera Tampa, Sun Tze in the world première of Rev. 23 with White Snake Projects, and sings the bass solo in Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex with Emmanuel Music.
