Praised for his vibrant coloratura, warmth of tone, and versatility; Austin Siebert brings a kinetic energy to both operatic stages and concert halls. Baritone-Austin Siebert recently completed his tenure as the Spotlight Artist for Austin Opera. While performing as Austin Opera’s resident young artist, he covered Lt. Audebert in Kevin Puts’ Silent Night and Marcello in La Bohéme. In addition to these covers, he sang the roles of Araldo in Otello, Customs House Officer in La Bohéme, and German Solider 1 in Silent Night. Siebert was featured as the Bass soloist for Haydn’s Stabat Mater with Chorus Austin and Austin Symphony Orchestra’s Messiah. Other performances include Mr. Gobineau (The Medium) and Marco (Gianni Schicchi) with Merola Opera Program, Belcore with Dallas Opera Outreach’s version of L’elisir d’amore, and Mustafá in Seagle Music Colony’s L’Italiana in Algeri. While at the University of North Texas, Siebert performed the title role in Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd and played the villains in Les Contes d’Hoffmann. Siebert holds a Masters in Music from the University of North Texas and a B.A. in Music from Northwestern University.
"Austin Siebert, whose performance as both the Imperial Commissioner and Prince Yamadori is a surprise standout of the production, showing a warmth in tone that's well-suited to his versatility."
