Joshua Guerrero


The fast-rising American tenor has appeared with many prominent companies internationally, including France (Gabriele Adorno/Simon Boccanegra, Opéra National de Bordeaux); Germany (Des Grieux/Manon Lescaut, Oper Frankfurt); Britain (Pinkerton/Madama Butterfly, Glyndebourne Festival Opera); Spain (Nemorino/L’elisir d’amore, Seville’s Teatro de la Maestranza); and Venezuela (Rodolfo/La bohème with the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra in Caracas, with which he has also sung Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel). Among his major successes in America are Rodolfo (San Diego), Edgardo/Lucia di Lammermoor (Miami), and tenor soloist/Haydn’s The Creation (Los Angeles Philharmonic). Guerrero’s portrayal of Count Almaviva/Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles can be heard on CD in a recording that was honored with two Grammy Awards. A native of Las Vegas, Nevada, the tenor is an alumnus of UCLA and the young-artist programs of The Santa Fe Opera and LA Opera. In 2014, Guerrero won second prize at the prestigious Operalia competition.
