Baritone

Dimitrie Lazich

Over the course of his still burgeoning career baritone Dimitrie Lazich has amassed significant credits both internationally and in the US, performing a number of leading roles.  He was praised as "a marvel, the mix of silliness and strong singing which served the ludicrous Papageno well", in last year's Opera Theater of Pittsburgh's production of THE MAGIC FLUTE.  Most recently, in Opera Theater of Pittsburgh's 2013 season, Mr. Lazich performed to great acclaim as Edwin Cheney in Daren Hagen's SHINING BROW, and as the three villains in THE TALES OF HOFFMANN he sang with a "lovley sound and a smooth technique" and "had wonderful resonance, a good top, and charm as Lindorf as well as the other names under which Hoffmann's nemesis appears."  This fall he will be singing in the Pittsburgh premier of Tobias Picker's THÉRÈSE RAQUIN as Laurent.
