Eric Jordan

Opera Singer

Eric Jordan has been sought by opera companies for his trademark “big bass and presence to match” (Opera News). His voice is described as possessing “a resonant, ringing tone that was well produced throughout its range” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), and The New York Times stated that his “powerful, nuanced singing and thoughtful acting amounted to a wholly remarkable portrayal.” His debut role with the New York City Opera was Ashby in La Fanciulla del West. Jordan returned to the New York City Opera in productions of La Bohème, Semele, Così fan tutte, Madame Butterfly, La Donna del Lago, La Traviata, Capriccio, Il Viaggio a Reims, The Mines of Sulphur, Lysistrata, and Carmen. Jordan’s debut season at the Metropolitan Opera included productions of Don Carlo, Magic Flute, and Pelléas et Mélisande. Before his second season at the Metropolitan, he suffered a major stroke, but was still able to take part in following productions: Les Troyens, Don Carlo, Carmen, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream, Eugene Onegin, and Andrea Chenier. Eric Jordan holds music degrees from the University of California at Los Angeles and the New England Conservatory of Music. A regional finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, he received additional training with the Central City Opera House Association, the International Institute of Vocal Arts, and the Israeli Institute of Vocal Arts.
