Anthony Roth Costanzo
Grammy Award–winner Anthony Roth Costanzo has appeared in opera, concert, recital, film, and on Broadway. Recently, he returned to the Metropolitan Opera in his acclaimed performance of the title role in Philip Glass’s Akhnaten. Last season he was the New York Philharmonic’s Artist-in-Residence, performing and curating programming to reflect on questions of identity. Over the pandemic, when concert life was paused, he partnered with the Philharmonic to create and produce NY Phil Bandwagon, an initiative that brought over a hundred concerts to all five boroughs. This fall, he took London’s BBC Proms into a nightclub for the first time with his film/fashion/dance/opera extravaganza Glass Handel. His live show Only an Octave Apart with cabaret legend Justin Vivian Bond received numerous “Best of 2021” accolades for its New York run. He has performed and produced around the world at venues including Carnegie Hall, Versailles, Madison Square Garden, Opera Philadelphia, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Kennedy Center, the London Symphony Orchestra, Kabuki-Za Tokyo, San Francisco Opera, the Guggenheim, Chicago Lyric Opera, the Park Avenue Armory, Teatro Real Madrid, and many others. Costanzo graduated with honors from Princeton University, where he has returned to teach, and Manhattan School of Music, where he is on the board of trustees and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in 2022.
