“Money-notes worth every penny,” “wonderful acting,” “movie star good looks,”and “passionate elegance” are just a few of the phrases used by critics to describe tenor Isaac Hurtado. Critically acclaimed for portrayals of Rodolfo in La Bohème, Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor, Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, Werther in Werther, the Duke in Rigoletto, Tamino in Die Zauberflöte, Alfredo in La Traviata, and Roméo in Roméo et Juliette, Mr. Hurtado is “the complete package.”
Additional opera roles include Belmonte in Die Entfürung aus dem Serail, the title role in Bernstien’s Candide, Ferrando in Cosí fan tutte, Agenore in Mozart’s Il re pastore and Tebaldo in I Capuleti e i Montecchi. As Roger Doremus in Lee Hoiby’s Summer and Smoke, Mr. Hurtado was heard nationally on National Public Radio’s World of Opera.
In May, 2021 Mr. Hurtado will make his Utah Opera Debut as Don José in La Tragèdie de Carmen.
