ABOUT

German baritone, Dennis Chmelensky, returns to Washington National Opera as a member of the Cafritz Young Artist Program for the 21/22 season.

 

Praised for his “strikingly individual timbre” (Philadelphia Magazine) and “his moving, rich baritone accompanied by real acting” (Phindie), Dennis recently performed the title role Don Giovanni in a Curtis/Opera Philadelphia co-production under the baton of Karina Canellakis, and in Mexico City.

 

In 2020, Dennis made his debut in Russia performing in the Opera for Peace — Leading Young Voices of the World Gala. Dennis is a 2018 Opera Awards career grant recipient. His debut album, DENNIS, was released in 2009 by Sony Music.
