Join us for one more recital at Mia Cuppa Caffe, featuring two singers from the cast of Dead Man Walking. Zeffin and Robert were last seen on the FGO stage in the February production of Sweeney Todd. Both return to the company for roles in Dead Man Walking, and are putting on a recital for you!
Tenor Robert Norman has been praised for his comedic skills with “impeccable timing to match an equally admirable tenor,” and is making a name for himself as a character tenor on the rise. He has performed nationally with L.A. Opera, Opera San José, Opera Santa Barbara, Opera Las Vegas, Long Beach Opera, and Union Avenue Opera. Robert debuted with Fresno Grand Opera as Steve Hubbell in A Streetcar Named Desire. He returns to Fresno Grand Opera to perform the role of Howard Boucher in Dead Man Walking after a triumphant performance as Tobias in Sweeney Todd.
Baritone Zeffin Quinn Hollis in uncommonly at ease as both actor and singer. His work has spanned coast-to-coast and beyond, including appearances at Dallas Opera, Santa Fe Opera, New York City Opera, Opera Pacific, Opera Theatre of Pittsburg, El Paso Opera, Palm Beach Opera, Opera Delaware, Opera Providence, Long Beach Opera, Toledo Opera, New Orleans Opera Association, Dubai Proms, The Pécs and Szeged National Theatres, and the Lviv National Theatre. After his spellbinding performance in the title role of Sweeney Todd, Hollis returns to Fresno Grand Opera to perform the role of Owen Hart in Dead Man Walking .
