AJ Glueckert

— Tenor

"AJ Glueckert was a believably dimensional Erik, singing with a clear, ringing sound and great emotional power."
Elaine Schmidt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, January 12, 2019 - Erik in 'Der fliegende Holländer' with the Milwaukee Symphony

“Glueckert’s appealing tenor is youthful and rich, and he has the stamina required to survive Strauss’s seemingly endless denial of the need for a perfect cadence. The final, lengthy duet certainly was ‘godly’.”
Claire Seymour, Opera Today, June 27, 2017 - Bacchus in 'Ariadne auf Naxos' at the Glyndebourne Festival

“Taking the place of Jay Hunter Morris, who withdrew from the run for personal reasons, the clarion, sensitive tenor AJ Glueckert had a solid Met debut as Erik, the earnest huntsman who loves Senta.”
Anthony Tommasini, New York Times, April 26, 2017 - Erik in 'Der fliegende Holländer' at the Metropolitan Opera

“AJ Glueckert, a member of the ensemble since this season, is thrilling as Lyonel with a bright lyric tenor, which has long been absent at the Frankfurt Opera. Wonderfully even, free and easy, he shapes the aria “Ach so fromm” and exudes in full strength with a round, soft intensity.”
Christiane Francke, Opernnetz, October 18, 2016 - Lyonel in 'Martha' at Oper Frankfurt

“AJ Glueckert’s gleaming, meaty tenor was an ideal fit for the grueling demands of Bacchus (and the Tenor). We are so used to be being happy enough with anyone who can bray his manageable way through the role, that is was a delight to revel in Mr. Glueckert’s sturdy, secure and attractive rendition.”
James Sohre, Opera Today, June 27, 2016 - Bacchus in 'Ariadne auf Naxos' at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis

“A.J. Glueckert, another debut artist, displayed a gleaming, effortless tenor sound and he did not shy away from the high lying vocal writing that Dvorák gives to the Prince.”
George Dansker, Opera News, February 2015 - Prince in 'Rusalka' at New Orleans Opera


Tenor AJ Glueckert has been praised by the New York Times for his “clarion, sensitive tenor.” In the 2018-2019 season, he will be seen at Oper Frankfurt as Count Vaudemont in a new production of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta conducted by Sebastian Weigle and Edrisi in King Roger conducted by Sylvain Cambreling. He will reprise his performance as Flamand Strauss’ Capriccio directed by Brigitte Fassbaender and Don José in Barrie Kosky’s production of Carmen. In concert, he sings Erik in Der fliegende Holländer with Edo de Waart and the Milwaukee Symphony.
