Biography
Paulo Szot

Born in São Paulo, baritone Paulo Szot has appeared with many leading opera companies throughout Europe, the United States, and his native Brazil. In 2008 he won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of Emile De Beque in the Broadway revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific at Lincoln Center Theater.

In the current season, Mr. Szot sings Don Alfonso in a new production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte at Paris Opéra, and performs a solo recital in Madrid as a salute to Antônio Carlos Jobim. He also returns to Feinstein’s 54 Below in New York City for a series of solo performances, and creates the roles of Alexander Hamilton, Bill Clinton, and Dick Cheney in the World Premiere of Mohammed Fairouz’s The New Prince at Dutch National Opera.

Highlights from previous seasons include Mr. Szot’s critically acclaimed debut at The Metropolitan Opera as Kovalev in Shostakovich’s The Nose, and his returns there as Escamillo in Bizet’s Carmen, Lescaut in Massenet’s Manon, Dr. Falke in R. Strauss’s Die Fledermaus, and the Captain in John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer. Mr. Szot has also sung the role of Kovalev at Rome Opera, Guglielmo in Così fan tutte for his Paris Opéra debut, Filippov in Alexander Raskatov’s A Dog’s Heart at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Escamillo for his San Francisco Opera debut, Sharpless in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly at Marseille’s Opera Municipal, the title role in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin with Opera Australia, and Almaviva in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro at the Aix-en-Provence Festival.

He has also appeared at Carnegie Hall with Deborah Voigt and the Collegiate Chorale, and the New York Pops Orchestra. Paulo Szot made his New York Philharmonic debut alongside Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey, and Kelli O’Hara in the April 2009 Spring Gala, New York Moments, conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. Most recently, he appeared with the Philharmonic in An Enchanted Evening with Paulo Szot, the June 2013 Spring Gala directed and conducted by Ted Sperling, and also featuring Megan Hilty, Marin Mazzie, and Billy Stritch.
