Aubrey Allicock | Meet the Artists
Bass-baritone. Young Emile in Champion.
Aubrey grew up in Tuscon, Arizona and originally discovered singing at church. After high school, he attended Grand Canyon University for his undergraduate degree, Indiana University for graduate school, and was a member of The Juilliard School‘s Artist Diploma in Opera Studies program.
This performance is Aubrey’s WNO debut.
Aubrey spent over 5 seasons with the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. His first part—while a member of the Gerdine Young Artist program—was as a customs official in La bohème. With each season, his roles grew and ranged from Zaretsky in Eugene Onegin to the Mad Hatter in the U.S. premiere of Alice in Wonderland.
Fun fact! In 2013, Aubrey originated the role of Young Emile at his beloved Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. The bass-baritone deeply connected with his character, saying, “I feel like the role was written for me.”
Other role highlights include Escamillo in Carmen, the title role in The Marriage of Figaro, Tiridate in Radamisto, and Mamoud in The Death of Klinghoffer.
Opera News says Aubrey’s voice “has a distinctively glossy, warm color, with increasingly impressive freedom and fullness at the top of its range.”
