Dean Power

Tenor

Following nine years as an ensemble member at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Irish tenor Dean Power is firmly establishing himself as a solo guest artist on the international stage. Dean’s recent highlights have included singing the role of Graf Elemer Arabella for his house debuts at both the Teatro Real, Madrid and Opernhaus Zürich, his company debut at the Salzburger Festspiele as Gherardo Gianni Schicchi and Venditore Il Tabarro in Christof Loy’s new production of Il Trittico, creating the role of Gary in the world premiere of The First Child by Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh for Irish National Opera, his house debut at Opéra de Lille as Snout A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a new production by Laurent Pelly, and joining The Dudamel Foundation and Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra to sing Jaquino in a unique semi-staged performance of Fidelio under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel; a performance created especially for both deaf and hearing audiences.

Discography

Press

Mozart COSÌ FAN TUTTE / Irish National Opera

"Dean Power possessed excellent comic timing as Ferrando. His cheery acceptance of the wager had the correct element of slapstick without ever descending into farce. His devastation at discovering Dorabella’s unfaithfulness was truly piteous."
Michelle Lee, Golden Plec
 (May 2023)

"Power’s tenor voice projects ardent tenderness in his few solo passages (his aria Un’aura amorosa [‘a breath of love’], always a highlight, is nicely-placed in this scenario)"
Andrew Larkin, Bachtrack (May 2023)



Ryba STABAT MATER / Prague Symphony Orchestra

"Irish tenor Dean Power impressed with an extremely delicious voice. A singer with experience from opera houses in Munich, Zurich, Paris, plus the Glyndebourne and Wexford festivals, and this year making his debut at the Salzburg festival, he proved to be a sensitive performer of oratorios. His speech was captivating, not flashy."
Alena Sojková, Klasika Plus (April 2022)
