Baritone Louis Otey, a major stage personality noted for his incisive and provocative interpretations, has performed in the major opera houses around the world in a career spanning 30 years, five continents, and more than 20 countries. His repertory is as varied as the geographies he has graced and includes signature performances in the great roles for his voice — Scarpia in Tosca, Count di Luna in Il Trovatore, the title roles in Don Giovanni, Falstaff, Rigoletto, and Der Fliegende Hollander, and the four villains in Les Contes D’Hoffmann. The Otey repertory also ranges as widely as from Grandier in Penderecki’s The Devils of Loudun to the title role in Sweeney Todd by Stephen Sondheim.
