Branch Fields, whom Opera America describes as "a bass of resonant richness," and The New York Times declared to be "a gifted young bass," is delighting audiences and critics alike with his glorious instrument and leading man looks in opera, concert and musical theater. He has sung with Santa Fe Opera, New York City Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Opera Carolina, Michigan Opera Theatre, Utah Opera, Opera San Jose, and many other regional opera companies throughout the U.S. In concert, Branch has performed with the Munich Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra, Santa Fe Symphony, Colorado Springs Philharmonic, and the American Symphony Orchestra.
Branch’s versatility as a singing actor led to his Broadway debut in SOUTH PACIFIC, understudying the role of Emile de Becque in this Lincoln Center Theater production. This monumental 2008 revival won 7 Tony Awards.
In October 2014, Branch sang the role of the minister Raimondo in Opera in Williamsburg's production of Gaetano Donizetti's opera 'Lucia di Lammermoor.'
Mr. Fields is a Virginian, from Williamsburg, where he resides with his wife Mya and three children
