As Ruiz in Il trovatore at the San Francisco Opera
Visit the web site of Andrew Bidlack and you’ll find the expected publicity photos from Mozart and Verdi productions, many with the San Francisco Opera where he held the prestigious Adler Fellowship. But look closely and you'll also find Bidlack on the field beside the San Francisco 49ers cheerleaders. Yes, the tenor has a sideline specialty singing the national anthem. This fall, however, he's the nobleman Baron Lummer in Strauss’ Intermezzo at New York City Opera (his debut) as well as an appearance in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio at Carnegie Hall on December 23.
