André Campelo

Andre Campelo

Brazilian baritone André Campelo is being increasingly recognized for his ability to sing and act in a wide range of musical genres, from madrigal to opera, and art song to oratorio. He has delighted audiences in University of Kentucky Opera Theatre’s productions of South Pacific (Émile de Becque), Così fan tutte (Don Alfonso), The Tales of Hoffmann (the Four Villains), The Marriage of Figaro (Count Almaviva), and Don Giovanni (Masetto). Most recently, Mr. Campelo appeared as a soloist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Kentucky Bach Choir and in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the UK Symphony Orchestra. Contemporary operatic repertoire is represented by the Spanish-language opera Ainadamar (José Tripaldi) by Osvaldo Golijov, with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra. Since 2009, Campelo has also been performing the solo recital Indigenous Legends and African-Brazilian Music in Panama, Portugal, and Brazil, where he recently did his first national tour.
