Hailed for his “top notes exploding like fireworks, sparkling and incandescent,” tenor Matthew Dalen is an in-demand artist. During his flourishing career, Dalen has collaborated with the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis (Gerdine Young Artist), the Niagara Symphony Orchestra, and Grand Philharmonic Choir (Kitchener, Ontario), as well as multiple other companies across North America and Europe. Recent and upcoming engagements include Handel’s Messiah with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Puccini’s La Bohème with Opéra du Royaume (Rodolfo), Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with Orchestre classique de Montréal, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Niagara Symphony. Matthew also returned to Opéra de Montréal for Die Zauberflöte (May 2022) and for the premiere of La beauté du monde, creating the role of Hermann Göring (November 2022). Dalen is a graduate of the Yulanda M. Faris Young Artists Program at Vancouver Opera, the Atelier Lyrique of Opéra de Montréal, and was a laureate of Jeunes Ambassadeurs Lyriques.
