PATRICK MILLER

JEAN VALJEAN, LES MISÉRABLES

Patrick made his Lyric Opera of Chicago debut in the roles of Arturo in Lucia di Lammermoor and the First Philistine in Samson et Dalila during the 2003-04 season, going on to create the role of Dino (the groom) in Lyric's World Premiere of A Wedding, composed by William Bolcom and directed by Robert Altman the follow season. Other honors that season included appearing as soloist in Lyric Opera's 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Concert.

Since making his professional debut as Camille in Fargo-Moorhead Opera's 2000 production of The Merry Widow, Patrick has triumphed in productions of Don Giovanni with Seattle Opera and Boston Baroque, Susannah and Eugene Onegin with Virginia Opera, Madama Butterfly with Lyrique-en-Mer Festival, Belle-Ile, France, The Bartered Bride with Opera Boston, The Mikado in St. Louis, Arizona, and Indianapolis, A Midsummer Night's Dream with Chicago Opera Theater, The Magic Flute with Orlando Opera and Lyric Opera of San Antonio, La traviata with Lyric Opera of San Antonio, Dialogues of the Carmelites with Glimmerglass Opera, and Don Giovanni and Die Fledermaus with the Lyric Opera Center of Lyric Opera of Chicago. His Tamino in Theatre de la Jeune Lune's Minneapolis production of The Magic Flute (hailed as the Best Production of the Year by the Minneapolis Star Tribune) was filmed for the Lincoln Center Arts Library's permanent collection. Recently, Patrick sang the tenor lead in Ricky Ian Gordon's Rappahannock County with the Virginia Arts Festival, then reprised his Pinkerton with Syracuse Opera and Nevada Opera and made his role debut at Mario Cavaradossi (opposite his wife in the title role) with Syracuse Opera. This season includes a return to Opera on the James to sing Rinuccio as well as tenor soloist for Bach's Magnificat at Old St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. Patrick is also thrilled to be participating in two world premieres this season. In March, he will be singing the leading role of John Turner in Emerson Eads' The Color of Gold with Opera Fairbanks, and then in May he will create the role of Clark Griffith in Daniel Sonenberg's The Summer King (a story of racial integration in baseball) with American Opera Projects.

Patrick has worked closely with the leading composers of our time, creating and performing works alongside Dominick Argento, William Bolcom, Carlisle Floyd, Ricky Ian Gordon, Libby Larsen, Kirke Mechem and Stephen Paulus. Recent highlights include leading roles in William Bolcom's A Wedding with Lyric Opera of Chicago and Kirke Mechem's John Brown with Lyric Opera of Kansas City.

In the world of music theater, Patrick has appeared as George (Sunday in the Park with George), Will Parker (Oklahoma!), Tony (West Side Story), and Cornelius Hackl (Hello, Dolly!). Patrick also participated in the US Premiere of Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson's Kristina from Duvemola, performed in Swedish.

Equally at home on the concert stage, Patrick Miller's oratorio and concert performances include works of Bach, Beethoven, Bernstein, Britten, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert and Lehar. Important orchestral debuts for Patrick include the Boston Pops and the Seattle Symphony under the baton of Gerard Schwartz. He has sung at such international festivals as the Covent Garden Festival, the Prague Spring Festival, the Oregon Bach Festival, and the Flanders Festival.

Patrick has been the recipient of numerous regional honors, including winner of the American Opera Society Competition, Regional finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and finalist for the Connecticut Opera Competition. Mr. Miller spent two summers studying Italian and Bel Canto singing with Raina Kabaivanska at the prestigious Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy. Mr. Miller holds a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota and a Performance Certificate in Opera from Boston University's Opera Institute.
