About the Performers

David Majoros

Since making his debut with the Arizona Opera in 1979, David Majoros has been consistently commended by critics for his exceptionally beautiful, versatile voice and his dramatic artistry in performance. “Opera News” praised his “beautiful baritone, passionate musicality and charismatic acting” as Belcore in Donizetti’s “L’Elisir D’Amore” with the Arizona Opera, while the “Tucson Citizen” pointed out his “big, flawless voice and impeccable dramatic instincts’ in his warm portrayal of Sharpless in Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly.” He has also appeared with Wolf Trap Opera, on tour with the Minnesota Opera, Verismo Opera, New Rochelle Opera, Taconic Opera, and Regina Opera, starring in such leading roles as Scarpia in Puccini’s “Tosca,” the title role in Verdi’s “Rigoletto,” Figaro in Rossini’s “Il Barbiere di Siviglia,” the Count in Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro,” Tonio in Leoncavallo’s “I Pagliacci,” Horace Tabor in Moore’s “The Ballad of Baby Doe,” and the Toreador in Bizet’s “Carmen.”

In addition to his operatic career Mr. Majoros has performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Detroit Symphony, the Eastman-Rochester Philharmonic, the Tucson Symphony, the Long Island Philharmonic, and as a recitalist/soloist at the Chautauqua, Flagstaff, and Bravo! Colorado summer music festivals.

In the summer of 2002 he added Shakespeare to his extensive list of stage experiences, as he performed the role of Corin in “As You Like It” for a NYC Shakespeare in Central Park Equity Showcase Production.

A native of Charleroi, Pennsylvania, he holds the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Arizona, where he studied with Eugene Conley.

"I began to feel more and more...that if I wanted to write music that, to me, seemed worthwhile, I must keep away from musicians."
