Cody Quattlebaum

Bass-baritone

  • American bass-baritone Cody Quattlebaum is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting new vocal talents of his generation. Equally in demand for both operatic and concert repertoire - ranging from the Baroque to contemporary - his highlights for the 2020/21 season include an anticipated company debut with Teatro Real as Masetto Don Giovanni under the baton of Ivor Bolton, and a house debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

  • Last season, Quattlebaum made his BBC Proms debut in Handel’s Jephtha. Further engagements included Berlioz Roméo et Juliette with the RTVE Symphony Orchestra; Mefistofele Prologue with the Oakland Symphony Orchestra; a concert tour of Bach Coffee Cantata with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale and Richard Egarr; and a New Year’s Concert Gala at the Teatr Wielki. Quattlebaum was also invited to premiere Until the lions Echoes from the Mahabharata by Thierry Pécou at the Opéra national du Rhin; to sing Zuniga Carmen at the Dutch National Opera; Cithéron Platée with Des Moines Metro Opera; and Beethoven Missa Solemnis with BBC National Orchestra of Wales.


    Recent highlights include Don Fernando Fidelio with Marc Minkowski at the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg; Handel Brockes Passion and Bach St John Passion - both at the Barbican with Richard Egarr and the Academy of Ancient Music; Segeste Arminio and Dettingen Te Deum at the Händel-Festspiele in Göttingen under the baton of Laurence Cummings. As a member of the Dutch National Opera studio during the 2018/19 season, roles included Geronimo Il matrimonio segreto and Bruno Zirato in the world premiere of Micha Hamel’s Caruso a Cuba. Prior to this, Quattlebaum was a member of the prestigious Opernhaus Zürich International Opera Studio, performing roles such as Schriftsteller in the world premiere of Der Traum von Dir, Larkens La Fanciulla del West and Zuniga in Barrie Kosky’s acclaimed production of Carmen.


    Quattlebaum was a finalist in the 2018 Glyndebourne Cup 2018, the Metropolitan Opera National Council competition in 2017, and the recipient of a Sara Tucker grant from the Richard Tucker Foundation. He is an alumnus of the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music, and the Julliard School.
