Spencer Lang (tenor), from Sandy, Oregon, holds a bachelor’s degree in music from Pacific Lutheran University, a master’s degree in music from The Juilliard School, and a professional certificate from the Curtis Institute of Music. Since 2014 he has been a member of the International Opera Studio at Opernhaus Zürich, and in the 2016–17 season he will join their ensemble. In Zürich he has performed a varied repertoire, including the world premiere of Rote Laterne by German composer Christian Jost in the role of Fay-Pu. He was also seen as Daniel (Frank Schwemmer’s Robin Hood), Der Hirt (Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde), and Monsieur Vogelsang (Mozart’s Der Schauspieldirektor). In the coming season he will reprise Monsieur Vogelsang, and perform as Graf Gustav von Pottenstein in a new production of Lehár’s Das Land des Lächelns. Mr. Lang also has an active recital and concert career. He has been a participant of the illustrious Marlboro Chamber Music Festival since 2012, and was a finalist at the International Wigmore Hall Song Competition in 2015. He recently performed the role of Jonathan in the relatively unknown Handel oratorio Alexander Balus to critical acclaim with the London Handel Festival, conducted by Laurence Cummings.
