This special event, presented in San Francisco’s beautiful Herbst Theatre — a cornerstone and jewel among the city’s most prestigious venues — will feature one of the opera world’s exciting new vocal talents, countertenor Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen. The 2017 Metropolitan Opera National Young Artists Award Winner, former Merola Opera Program participant, 2018 San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow, and ABS Academy alumnus has been capturing the hearts of opera lovers around the world. Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen will be featured in arias by Handel and Gluck.
The New York Times wrote that the young breakout artist “possesses a remarkable gift for intimate communication in a vast hall, combined with a voice of velvety gentleness — surprisingly penetrating given the tenderness of its texture — and a taste for adventure. … Expressive yet dignified, his phrasing confident and his ornamentation stylishly discreet, he brought tears to my eyes.”
