American Baritone Matthew Gamble is firmly establishing himself as an artist of rare versatility. Already, in the onset of his career, he has performed with some of the most important artists of our time.
Noted for his flexible technique, he has been able to cross genres that have garnered success from both audience and critics alike. Matthew recently made his anticipated Musical Theatre debut at the THÉÂTRE du CHÂTELET in Paris, performing as Private Augenti in Sondheim's PASSION, alongside leading soprano Natalie Dessay as Fosca, directed by celebrated French actress, Fanny Ardant. He has most recently concluded a fruitful collaboration with the BILL T JONES / ARNIE ZANE DANCE COMPANY (2014-2019), as Principal Soloist, in the world premieres of A Letter to my Nephew/Lance and Analogy/Lance aka Pretty the Escape Artist with consistent performances throughout Asia, Europe, and North America including debuts with the KENNEDY CENTER, SPOLETO FESTIVAL, BAM's Next Wave Festival, MAISON des ARTS CRETEIL (France), MICHIGAN OPERA THEATRE, and both the MACAU and SINGAPORE Festival of Arts. For the remainder of the 2018-2019 season Matthew revisited the role of Leporello DON GIOVANNI where Opera News acclaimed his portrayal as a "streetsmart procurer who seemed closer to a proactively thinking Figaro than the usually put-upon servant" for CHAMBER MUSIC NORTHWEST, as a co-production with HEARTBEAT OPERA (NYC). Finally, Matthew, debuted with the PROTOTYPE FESTIVAL (NYC) in the highly anticipated world premiere of MILA, GREAT SORCERER as the "Uncle/Yellow Demon", directed by Kevin Newbury and conducted by Manoj Kamps, in his North American debut.
