Known for his versatility, sensitivity, and captivating storytelling, Evan Lindberg is a Canadian bass-baritone equally at home in the worlds of opera, art song, early music, and contemporary music. He is a recent graduate of McGill University’s Schulich School of Music, where he studied with Matthew Treviño and Michael McMahon, and holds a Bachelor of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. While at McGill, Evan performed the roles of Leporello (Don Giovanni), Zoroastro (Orlando), Ormonte (Partenope), and Leonato (Much Ado – workshop). In the Fall of 2020, Evan took part in a digital opera collaboration between Opera McGill and Tapestry Opera, portraying roles in The Rape of Artemisia & What Rhymes With Azimuth. During his undergrad at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Evan performed the roles of Don Alfonso (Così fan tutte) and Bottom (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) with the Oberlin Opera Theatre. In addition, Evan took part in a workshop of the role of Father in a contemporary opera (Beasts of The Bungalow) by the Brooklyn-based composer Rachel J. Peters and the Alberta born librettist Royce Vavrek. 

A keen interpreter of song repertoire, Evan was a recent member of McGill University’s Song Interpretation ensemble, where he performed various song cycles, including Beethoven’s An die fern Geliebte and Ropartz’s Quatre Poèmes de l’intermezzo. In 2018, Evan performed a program of works by Othmar Schoek, Charles Ives, and Franz Schubert, at the Institute for European Studies in Vienna. 

When Evan is not performing, he enjoys curling up with a cup of tea and a good book, taking a stroll through Montreal’s botanical gardens, and going to see live theatre!
