The Juilliard graduate Will Liverman is an alumnus of the Ryan Opera Center at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Called “a voice for this historic moment” (Washington Post), he is the recipient of many awards, such as the Sphinx Medal of Excellence and the 2022 Beverly Sills Artist Award by The Metropolitan Opera. At this company, he recently reprised the roles of Horemhab in Akhnaten and Papageno in The Magic Flute. Moreover, he opened the Met’s 2021/22 season in a celebrated performance as Charles in Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones. Following its success, the Met announced that Liverman will star in Anthony Davis’ X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X, premiering Fall 2023. Additionally, Liverman has performed Rambaud in Le Comte Ory with Seattle Opera, Pantalone in The Love of Three Oranges at Opera Philadelphia, and Dizzy Gillespie in Charlie Parker’s Yardbird at English National Opera. Other engagements this season include the title role in Pelléas et Mélisande at Los Angeles Opera, and Zurga in Austin Opera’s Les pêcheurs de perles. His performance of The Reverend in Blue will be his house debut at Dutch National Opera.
