Joseph Gaines

Of his recent performances in THE RETURN OF ULYSSES with Opera Omnia, The New York Times wrote, –you had no reason to want to spend so much time with the glutton Irus on his way to his suicide: no reason, that is, apart from the fine singing of Joseph Gaines.” Recognized nationally and internationally as a highly energetic, vibrant, and extremely versatile singer and actor, tenor Joseph Gaines is known for beautifully sung and richly detailed interpretations of character roles, and has been described as “such an exuberant performer you couldn’t help but smile” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune).
