The San Francisco Chronicle exclaims, “For theatrical charisma and musical bravado, it would be hard to top the performance of baritone Efraín Solís.” He is a recent graduate of the San Francisco Opera Adler Fellowship and while with the company, sang his first performances of Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, Dandini in La cenerentola, Schaunard in La bohème, Silvano in Un ballo in maschera, Sciarrone in Tosca, and Prince Yamadori in Madama Butterfly. In the 2017-18 season, he joins both Houston Grand Opera’s HGOCo and New York City Opera as Mark in Martinez’s Cruzar la cara de la Luna. He also returns to West Edge Opera in his home state of California for Golaud in his first performances of Pelléas et Mélisande and joins Washington Concert Opera as Fiesque in Maria di Rohan. On the concert stage, he sings his first performances of Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen with the Palo Alto Philharmonic, Handel’s Messiah with the Las Vegas Philharmonic, and concerts of opera favorites with both Opera Delaware and Baltimore Concert Opera. Last season, he debuted the role of Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Memphis and reprised it in a return to Livermore Valley Opera. He also sang Dick in Blitzstein’s The Cradle Will Rock with Opera Saratoga, was presented in recital by El Camino College Center for the Arts, returned to the New Century Chamber Orchestra for a Gershwin gala, and joined the New Choral Society for Handel’s Messiah.
