Gabriel Preisser

Baritone

Praised for his “rich voice” and “powerful stage presence,” lyric baritone Gabriel Preisser recently received rave reviews for his performance of Lt.

Additional recent engagements included Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus with El Paso Opera, Schaunard in La Boheme with Hidden Valley Music, Wonderful Town and El Gallo in The Fantasticks with Skylark Opera, Marullo in Rigoletto with the Minnesota Orchestra, Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Mississippi Valley Orchestra, Wayzata Symphony, and the Atlanta Ballet, Bach’s Coffee Cantata as well as Yamadori in Madama Butterfly with the Orlando Philharmonic, and several recitals throughout the US with music by Charles Ives, Brahms, Ravel, Villa-Lobos, and others.

Next up, Mr. Preisser sings Mercutio in Romeo et Juliette with St. Petersburg Opera; Belcore in L’Elisir d’Amore with Shreveport Opera; Le Mari in Les mamelles de Tirésias and Bobby in Weill’s Mahagonny Songspiel with Opera Parallèle; Baron Douphol in La Traviata with the Orlando Philharmonic; Handel’s Messiah with the Messiah Society in Orlando; and again will reprise Lt.

…consistently charismatic…
 The Fantasticks - “As the narrator and prospective seducer of the female lead, Gabriel Preisser is consistently charismatic and has a beautiful baritone voice. – Pioneer Music 
…young baritone was wonderful…
 Silent Night - “The young baritone Gabriel Preisser was wonderful as Lieutenant Gordon, a valiant and questioning Scottish officer.” - New York Times 
…excellent acting skills…
 Die Fledermaus - “Gabriel Preisser’s warm, rich voice was enhanced by his excellent acting skills. His very comfortable stage presence made him a believable Dr. Falke (the perpetrator of the revenge plot), and we rooted for him to succeed in snaring assorted characters into his net.”– El Paso Times 
…impeccably sung…
 La Boheme - “Gabriel Preisser’s Schaunard was impeccably sung and flawlessly acted and the whole principle ensemble worked wonderfully together, both in playful high-jinks and in the final scene, where subdued yet aching grief was beautifully conveyed by everyone.” - Monterey County Herald

Praised for his “rich voice” and “powerful stage presence,” lyric baritone Gabriel Preisser recently received rave reviews for his performance of Lt. Gordon in the world premiere of Kevin Putz’s Pulitzer Prize winning Silent Night with Minnesota Opera, which he then reprised with the Opera Company of Philadelphia in January of 2013.

Additional recent engagements included Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus with El Paso Opera, Schaunard in La Boheme with Hidden Valley Music, Wonderful Town and El Gallo in The Fantasticks with Skylark Opera, Marullo in Rigoletto with the Minnesota Orchestra, Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Mississippi Valley Orchestra, Wayzata Symphony, and the Atlanta Ballet, Bach’s Coffee Cantata as well as Yamadori in Madama Butterfly with the Orlando Philharmonic, and several recitals throughout the US with music by Charles Ives, Brahms, Ravel, Villa-Lobos, and others.

Next up, Mr. Preisser sings Mercutio in Romeo et Juliette with St. Petersburg Opera; Belcore in L’Elisir d’Amore with Shreveport Opera; Le Mari in Les mamelles de Tirésias and Bobby in Weill’s Mahagonny Songspiel with Opera Parallèle; Baron Douphol in La Traviata with the Orlando Philharmonic; Handel’s Messiah with the Messiah Society in Orlando; and again will reprise Lt. Gordon in Silent Night with Cincinnati Opera.

Mr. Preisser has been seen in several new works including the title role in Aldridge’s Elmer Gantry, Tom Joad in Gordon’s The Grapes of Wrath, and Riolobo in Catan’s Florencia en el Amazonas, all at the Moores Opera Center, Antonio in Hagen’s New York Stories at Kentucky Opera, John Brooke in Adamo’s Little Women, and the Shoe Salesman/Puppet role in Argento’s Postcard from Morocco, both at Pensacola Opera

However, he is truly comfortable on any stage and in a wide range of repertoire having  performed over 25 operatic and musical theater roles including Figaro in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Prince Ottokar in Der Freischütz, Danilo in The Merry Widow, the title role in Don Giovanni, Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, Achille in Giulio Cesare, Ubalde in Lully’s Armide, Pooh-bah in The Mikado, Mars in Orpheus in the Underworld, Don Quixote in Man of  la Mancha, Larry Foreman in The Cradle will Rock, Bob Baker in Bernstein’s Wonderful Town, and Albert in Werther with such companies as Minnesota Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Utah Festival Opera, Pensacola Opera, Kentucky Opera, Skylark Opera, and others.  Opera News made note of his “beautifully sung and beautifully portrayed” Yamadori for Kentucky Opera’s Madama Butterfly and his performance of Masetto at Utah Festival Opera was played “with a delicious mixture of jealous outrage and bewilderment… commanding the spotlight with vocal talent.”  Mr. Preisser also stays busy on the concert/recital stage having been featured as a soloist several times with the Houston Bach Society, Ars Lyrica, and Mercury Baroque.

He was a resident artist at Minnesota Opera, Kentucky Opera, and Pensacola Opera and an apprentice artist at Des Moines Metro Opera.  In the competition circuit, he has been honored as a district winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and won the American finals of the International Lirico Concorso Competition this past summer.  Mr. Preisser graduated summa cum laude from Florida State University with a double major in Vocal Performance and Commercial Music and completed a Masters in Voice at the University of Houston.
