Marcus McConico’s impressive presence and versatile range warrants rave reviews in performed signature roles such as Alfredo in La Traviata, Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, Cavaradossi in
Tosca, the title roles in Faust, Werther and Albert Herring, as well as Roméo and Tybalt in Roméo et Juliette, Don José in La tragédie de Carmen, and Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi. Of a recent performance as the title role in Faust, the Washington Post says “He sang a tenderly romantic "Salut! Demeure chaste et pure. Like soprano Borst, McConico has an impressive lower range; his occasional dips into baritone territory revealed a darkly rich tone.”

Marcus McConico has performed Alfredo in La Traviata with Opera Columbus, Augusta
Opera, Baltimore Opera, Opera Roanoke, and the Italian American Festival Duluth, and
most recently, Frederic in The Pirates of Penzance for Opera Carolina, and Lysander in A
Midsummer Night’s Dream for Lyric Opera of the North. In 2006, Mr. McConico appeared
as Il Duca in Rigoletto, and sang concert performances of Così fan tutte as Ferrando, both for the Sieur DuLuth Summer Arts Festival. In July 2006 Mr. McConico sang Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Duluth Festival Opera, and in April sang Rodolfo in La Bohème for the Unviversity of Minnesota with performances in Minneapolis and Duluth. The 2004-2005 season saw Mr. McConico’s debuts with Virginia Opera, as Faust, and with North Star Opera
(now Skylark Opera) in St. Paul, MN as Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus. Mr. McConico has
worked as an apprentice with numerous opera organizations including Central City Opera, Knoxville Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Baltimore Opera. Mr. McConico made his Baltimore Opera debut as the Coachman and Nihilist Teacher in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk in 2003. With Baltimore Opera, Mr. McConico has also performed, Ruiz in Il Trovatore, Bruno in I Puritani, Abdallo in Nabucco, and Ruggero in Puccini’s La Rondine.
