Los Angeles-based tenor William Grundler is overjoyed to perform in his fifth opera with Opera
Santa Barbara. William also recently sang with OSB in the Granada Theatre Legends Gala.

Praised as a “lean and poised tenor” (Opera Today) who can “[let] loose with a vocal
comeuppance that is as vocally satisfying as it is effortlessly funny” (Opera Today), notable roles
William has performed include Rodolfo in La Bohème, Lensky in Eugene Onegin, Don Ottavio in
Don Giovanni, and Justice Scalia in the Los Angeles premiere of Scalia/Ginsburg.

William made his Carnegie Hall debut performing scenes as Il Duca and Nemorino in scenes
from Rigoletto and L’elisir d’amore, respectively. Having recorded at prestigious studios such
as Capitol Studios and EastWest Studios, William was also featured as a vocalist on ‘The
Signal’, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Additional companies with whom William has performed include the LA Philharmonic, Pacific
Symphony, LA Master Chorale, LA Opera Connects, LA Opera, Pacific Opera Project,
Sacramento Opera, Lyric Opera of Orange County, and Long Beach Opera. William can next be
seen performing the role of Nanki-Poo in Pacific Opera Project’s performance of The Mikado at
the Festival of Arts of Laguna Beach.
