In a recent production of L’italiana in AlgieriDas Opernglas wrote, “Stephen Clark played Mustafà with full conviction and skillfully used his dark, slim bass.”

In Theater Bremen’s 2021-22 season, Clark performed the roles of Sarastro and Der Sprecher in a new production of Die Zauberflöte; Dulcamara in a revival of L’elisir d’amore; and Pistola in Falstaff. He also performed in two operas by Leoš Janáček, singing the role of Stárek in Jenůfa and Harašta in The Cunning Little Vixen.

Before moving to Germany, Stephen was a member of the Yale Opera program, where he made his role debuts as Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte and Sarastro in Die Zauberflöte. He also appeared as a concert soloist in Handel’s Messiah with the Hartford Chorale, in Stravinsky’s Renard with Orchestra New England, and in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Waterbury Symphony, the Hartford Symphony, and with the Yale Philharmonia under the baton of Marin Alsop.
