David Cangelosi has firmly established himself as an artist who combines both excellent singing with winning characterizations. He is highly acclaimed by major opera companies and symphony orchestras in the U.S. and abroad, particularly for his portrayal of Mime in Wagner’s Ring Cycle.

Additionally, Mr. Cangelosi serves as the Artistic/Program Director of the Vann Vocal Institute in Montgomery, Alabama, and actively travels the country as a recitalist, symphonic guest-artist, competition adjudicator, and Master Class instructor for aspiring vocalists.

Reviews

“Tenor David Cangelosi made a real human being out of the secondary character Prunier, and delivered the musically important part with panache. “

T.J. Medrek, Boston Herald
Opera review: La Rondine, Boston Lyric Opera

“Mime is David Cangelosi – beyond any doubt whatsoever the best acting I’ve seen anywhere in the world for this very fun – and challenging role.”

Opera Review: Siegfried, San Francisco Opera

"Nobody has ever been more effective or as amusing than David Cangelosi as Mime; he made every minute of this role a total pleasure."

Opera Review: as Mime

The henchman (Spoletta)...well sung by David Cangelosi (a splendid character actor).

Washington Classical Review
‘Tosca’, Washington National Opera (May 11, 2019)

“David Cangelosi’s Mime was vocally exactly right…moving…climbing…even doing an (impressive) series of cartwheels. “Cangelosi comes through it all, to his credit, singing well all along.”

San Francisco Examiner
Opera Review: Siegfried, San Francisco Opera

"Mime…brilliantly sung and acted by David Cangelosi, possibly the greatest Mime ever."

Opera West
Opera Review: as Mime

"David Cangelosi’s lustrous Tenor tones were conveyed with complete control as the character Mime… he obviously relished the potential of this multi-layered role...a 'tour-de–force' performance."

DC Metro Theater Arts
Opera Review: as Mime

"The remarkable David Cangelosi dominates the show to such an extent that the opera should be renamed ‘Mime’."

The Classical Review
Opera Review: as Mime

“Pagliacci’s best singing of the night came from Beppe…in a sweetly sung serenade, courtesy of tenor David Cangelosi. “

Humbled to say: "I told you so!!" (Boris Godunov, Dallas Opera)

April 5, 2011

As I attended a performance of Rigoletto on April 2, 2011 (one day after opening night of Boris Godunov) with my girlfriend Tracy, I must admit that I was thrilled to have been approached by several audience members who had already seen Boris at either our final dress rehearsal, or our actual opening night performance […]

"Death of a Symphony"??……Not so fast!!

March 26, 2011
Category:

One of the negative effects of participating so actively in the operatic forum is that of occasionally becoming musically ‘land-locked’.  After day-in and day-out of rehearsal, where the centerpiece is musical, sometimes the last thing we want to do in our free time is take in more music.  Oft times, I will do anything I […]

I sit in the auditorium, on this Monday night, of the spectacular new Winspear Opera House that is now home to a rejuvenated Dallas Opera.  Although the company itself, like so many arts organizations these days, is struggling mightily in the budget arena, it has not stopped them from mounting impressive productions and spotlighting new, […]

As the city of Chicago sustains the crippling “Blizzard of 2011” (replete with thunder and lightning) on this February 1st, and I watch with delight from my large bank of living room windows in this truly Windy City tonight; my mind is wandering back to the sunny mid 70 degree temperatures I was enjoying just […]

For the faithful readers of my blog (and I DO thank you), and for the occasional visitors to it; I thought it might be fun to post a short missive on what really goes on in the wings of the stage and, in fact, on-stage or just behind the set during a performance.  As you […]

Acid and Angst!!

January 10, 2011
Category:

When I was first starting off in the opera business, I remember being impressed when I heard that a fellow singer had just flown in from London, Paris, San Francisco, or New York.  So romantic it seemed; and I wondered if I would ever get the chance to be the one doing the flying….well, be […]
