Christopher S. Connelly

Baritone

Christopher Connelly

Christopher S. Connelly (Rodrigo) ... is happy to return to Center Stage Opera, where has sung the title roles in Verdi's "scottish opera" and Rigoletto, Iago in Otello, Di Luna in Il Trovatore and Scarpia in Tosca, a role he reprised for Atlanta's Jubal's Lyre and Capitol City companies. Atlanta audiences have also heard his Michele in Capitol City's Il Tabaro. He trained, among other places, at Mason Gross’ Opera at Rutgers program. For more years than he chooses to count, he has sung in the Atlanta Opera Chorus. On the concert stage, he has sung the title role in Der fliegende Holländer in a concert production with Indra Thomas, as was as in The Manhattan Touring Opera Company’s Verdi (2006) and Puccini (2007) marathon concerts. Christopher has also worked steadily in musical theatre. Favorite roles include Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors, Billy Bigelow in Carousel and Littlechap in Stop The World… In his copious spare time Christopher is completing a scholarly biography of stage and speak-easy legend Helen Morgan, although he himself spends little time sitting on pianos. His video essays and special materials grace Kino’s DVD release of Rouben Mamoulian’s Applause.
