Alan Woodrow has sung extensively with major opera houses around the world. He was principal tenor for several years at English National Opera; his numerous roles there include Don José in Bizet’s Carmen, Prince Andrei in Mussorgksy’s Khovanschina, and the Captain in Berg’s Wozzeck . Other European credits for Woodrow include Sergei in Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk at Teatro alla Scala, Paris-Opéra Bastille, and Frankfurt Opera and the Emperor in Richard Strauss’s Frau ohne Schatten at Deutsche Oper Berlin, Gran Teatre del Liceu, and Bayerische Staatsoper . Woodrow has sung the role of Siegfried often: in Toulouse, in Perth, in Barcelona, in Manaus, in Madrid, in Liège, and at Seattle Opera for his company debut in 2001. Woodrow returned to Seattle later that year to sing the Prince in Dvorak’s Rusalka. His many roles since then have included Guido Bardi in Zemlinsky’s Florentine Tragedy in Milan, and Herod in Richard Strauss’s Salome in Palermo. Future plans include Tristan in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde in Toulouse and Siegfried in Berlin. Woodrow returns to Seattle Opera in January 2006 to sing Alfred in Johann Strauss, Jr.’s Fledermaus.
