Andrew Sauvageau Headshot smAndrew Sauvageau cares about characters. Praised for the shining color in his voice, the spark and nuance of his acting, and for his contained ferocity in concert, Andrew brings his energy to the stage, both in operatic and in concert settings.

Gruber’s Frankenstein!!, Armando Bayolo’s Sacred Cows, and Michael Gordon’s Van Gogh with Great Noise Ensemble (Washington, DC).

Andrew has also participated in various premieres by Michael Oberhauser with Silver Finch Arts Collective in Washington, DC, as well as premieres by Ruby Fulton and Nicholas Vines at the Tanglewood Music Festival, and the American premiere of Joanna Lee’s Lear TV with hexaCollective at the Baltimore ArtScape Festival.

With a background in classical music, Andrew also performs operatic and concert repertoire. Favorite operatic roles include Falke (Die Fledermaus) with St. Petersburg Opera, Florida; Sid (Albert Herring) with hexaCollective, Baltimore; and Mercutio (Roméo et Juliette) with Bel Cantanti, Washington, DC.
