Errin Brooks



Grammy Award-winner Errin Duane Brooks is becoming one of the most sought-after tenors in the industry. Recently, Mr. Brooks just finished covering the title character in Verdi's Otello, and also singing the 1st Armored Man in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, the 1st Noble in Wagner’s Lohengrin, and the High Priest in Mozart's Idomeneo, all with the Metropolitan Opera. The summer of 2022 was a summer of debuts for Brooks, who recently made his company and role debut singing Bacchus in Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos, both with Vashon Opera and Lakes Area Music Festival. Mr. Brooks also sang the role of Robbins in George and Ira

Gershwin's Porgy and Bess in his company debut with Des Moines Metro Opera. Before singing the role Normanno in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor with The Met, Mr. Brooks made his off Broadway debut, performing the role of Mr. Charles in Ricky Ian Gordon and Lynn Nottage's Intimate Apparel at Lincoln Center Theater. Other roles performed includes Mingo in Porgy and Bess, Pinkerton in Puccini's Madane Butterfly, and Canio in Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci.


An avid fan of new music and great music that is rarely done, Mr. Brooks began the fall of his 2018-19 season as part of an exciting new project, The-Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7’oclock by Pulitzer prize-winning composer David Lang and acclaimed poets Anne Carson and Claudia Rankine, performed on New York’s High Line. In May 2019 Mr. Brooks made his much-anticipated return to New Amsterdam Opera as Jean de Baptîste in Massenet's Hérodiade. That same month, he made his debut with American Opera Project in their world-premiere production of Stonewall, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots sparked by the late great Marsha P. Johnson.


Mr. Brooks is also becoming well-versed in concert repertoire, performing in such works as the Schoenberg arrangement of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde in April 2022 with Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra at Washington Heights Collegiate Church, the tenor soloist in Brahm's Liebeslieder Waltzes in April 2019 with The National Chorale at David Geffen Hall, Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass, Vaughn-Williams Serenade to Music and Bernstein's Chichester Psalms in May 2018 at Carnegie Hall, Mozart’s Symphony No. 23 in D Major in April 2018 with Orchestra Society New Jersey, and Verdi’s Requiem in August 2017 with Utah Festival Opera.
