The Multi-Talented Brian Mulligan Mesmerizes Audiences around the World
Talented artists abound in many different musical genres. One of the most competitive entertainment fields for entertainers is opera. To captivate an audience opera singers must be capable of delivering powerfully precise vocal performances upon demand. Male baritone singers frequently deliver superb performances yet remain in the background as relatively unknown personalities. It takes true “star power” as well as innate talent to create a recognizable name in the world of classical music.
Opera stars must set themselves apart from the competition in order to stand out from the crowd. One of the brightest operatic stars to garner attention in recent years is Brian Mulligan. This New York born baritone hails from the city of Endicott and he has been creating some serious buzz among fans and critics alike.
Mulligan is a trained vocalist who began to hone his skills at the Juilliard School in Manhattan, New York. Upon graduation this talented baritone attended Yale University. He currently studies under the guidance of vocal instructor W. Stephen Smith. This individual also began instructing Mulligan during his college years.
Although he was still enrolled as a Juilliard student Brian made his official stage debut when he appeared in a Metropolitan Opera show. This would be his first public debut as an operatic performer but it would not be his last. Audiences were astounded to hear the power and crystal-clear notes that this young baritone offered. Mulligan also had an effortless grace and a commanding presence on stage that readily belied his young age.
Brian Mulligan has been featured at many different opera houses. His performances include roles in shows at Chicago’s Lyric Opera; the San Francisco Opera; Houston’s Grand Opera, the NY City Opera and even the Oper Frankfurt.
His voice has been described as richly melodic, powerful and smooth. Mulligan also possesses an incredible presence that resonates with his audiences. These are the talents that have helped Brian Mulligan achieve wide-spread fame and recognition early in his career. Although he has already been paired with many of the world’s best known opera stars Brian Mulligan can easily hold his own with any of these stars. It is fair to say that he has “stolen the show” on more than one occasion.
Among his many roles have been performances as “Sweeney Todd”, “Jack Torrance”, “Enrico” and Count Anckarström. The characters that Mulligan brings to life are both varied and complex. From ultra-classical operas to show-stopping modern theater it is quite obvious that Brian Mulligan has the “chops’ to make each role his own.
