American Tenor, Lindell O. Carter, has been noted as a “promising young tenor ... who lacks nothing in power and carry” ( Classical Voice of North Carolina ), and praised for “his rich timbre and ringing, easy top” ( London Herald ). Singing a wide repertoire on the stage, operatic credits include the title characters in Massenet’s Werther , Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann , and Debussy’s L’enfant Prodigue . Other notable appearances include Il Duca ( Rigoletto ), Cavaradossi ( Tosca ), Des Grieux ( Manon ), Jenìk (Smetana’s Prodaná nevesta ), Erik ( Der fliegende Holländer ), Alfredo ( La Traviata ), Riccardo ( Un Ballo in Maschera ), Rodolfo ( La Bohème ) and several other leading tenor roles. Engagements this season include debuts as Enzo Grimaldo (Ponchielli’s La Gioconda ), Vaudémont (Tchaickovsky’s Iolanta ), Alfred ( Die Fledermaus ), Canio ( Pagliacci ), and Edgardo ( Lucia di Lammermoor).
Just as at home on the concert stage, Lindell has appeared in recitals and concerts in New York City, across the United States, and in London, Italy, France, and in Spain in concert of singers selected by Montserrat Caballé. His concert credits include tenor solos in Beethoven’s Christus am Ölberge, Choral Fantasy, and Symphony No. 9; Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde; Verdi’s Messa di Requiem; Händel’s Messiah; Dubois’ Les Sept Paroles du Christ; and Mozart’s Requiem in D and Coronation Mass. A native of the Bronx, NY, Lindell holds a BM in Vocal Performance and BA in French Language from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
