PHILIP LIMA baritone
Philip Lima’s performances regulary are marked by critical praise: “His singing was glorious” (The Boston Globe) – “vibrant baritone and a commanding presence” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) – “keen musicianship along with total dramatic intention.” (Opera News ONLINE).
He has sung a wide array of leading operatic roles, including world premieres, for the international Kurt Weill Festival in Dessau, Germany; Lyric Opera Cleveland; Opera Theater of Pittsburgh; Opera Columbus; El Paso Opera; Boston Academy of Music and Opera Boston; Handel & Haydn Society; Granite State Opera; Cape Cod Opera; and Boston’s Prism Opera and Opera-by-the-Bay.
In concert, Mr. Lima has appeared as soloist with the Daejeon (Korea) Philharmonic Orchestra; the National Philharmonic of Ukraine; Boston Ballet; Boston Landmarks Orchestra; and more than fifty orchestras and concert series across the United States. Mr. Lima’s performance of Schubert’s Winterreise with pianist Beverly Orlove was described by The Boston Phoenix as one of Boston’s “Unforgettable Classical Events of 2005.”
Mr. Lima is a native of New Bedford, MA, and an alumnus of Yale University. He studied at the Tanglewood Music Center and with Richard Conrad. More information about Mr. Lima is available at
