About Sherrill

Sherrill Milnes is universally acclaimed as the foremost operatic baritone of his generation. With his powerful voice, commanding stage presence and rugged handsomeness, he achieved the kind of adulation that is usually reserved for tenors. He sang over 650 performances at the Met, where he was honored with sixteen new productions, seven opening nights, and ten national telecasts. As a leading artist in all of the world’s great opera houses, Mr. Milnes performed and recorded with the likes of Domingo, Pavarotti, Caballé, Sutherland, Sills, Horne, Price, and Tebaldi. He is the winner of three Grammy Awards, and the most recorded American singer of his time. In 2008 he received the Opera News Award for Distinguished Achievement.

Opera Naples has announced that Sherrill Milnes will be the Honorary Chairman of the company’s annual fundraising gala, “An Egyptian Fantasy,” which will be held on December 11, 2018.

In a press release Milnes said, “In little more than a decade, Opera Naples has distinguished itself from many others by building a home of its own and creating an academy for emerging international stars. It has the promise of a regional, perhaps even national, identity. But it needs our support and encouragement to scale those heights. I hope the Southwest Florida community will join me in showing support of this outstanding young opera company we’re so fortunate to have in our midst, by attending the annual gala.”
