Why aren’t you singing at the Met?
…a question frequently asked of the author after a performance. Bob liked to say to people, “I could never come up with a snappy come-back, so I sat down and wrote the whole story…” from when the great movie tenor, Mario Lanza, in the movie Student Prince (1954), inspired him to sing, to his last performance in 1991 as Don José in Carmen. Bob sang more than forty leading roles for more than thirty years with fifteen opera companies in New York City not many people know about. His story reads like a nail-biting novel, and it’s all true.

You’ll walk in Bob’s shoes through it all – onstage and off. His story is unique in the annuals of opera. You don’t want to miss it.

Robert P. Mitchell

Long before the Rev. Robert P. Mitchell was a “reverend,” he sang opera for over forty years. He appeared in fifteen productions with New York’s Amato Opera Company alone, and in numerous productions with fourteen other “minor league” companies in the NY-NJ metropolitan area. His most prestigious appearance occurred on Saturday, January 31, 1987 as Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Opera Classics of New Jersey at the Orrie de Nooyer Auditorium in Hackensack, New Jersey, with Maestro Anton Coppola conducting. The author was the only non-Metropolitan Opera or non-New York City Opera singer in the cast. That performance led to singing with the late Maestro Alfredo Silipini, then Artistic Director of the New Jersey State Opera.

He is a member of the national Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity.

His Biography, “Tales Of A Tenacious Tenor“, is available now from ASJ Publishing

    A most interesting book that I couldn’t put it down!
    By Racquel on October 28, 2014
    Format: Kindle Edition
    Tales of a Tenacious Tenor I found to be a most interesting book! It’s descriptive and vividly well written. The descriptions of emotions, settings and the many people you encountered drew me into your struggle to make your way into opera. I was so drawn into the story I couldn’t put it down! The title is perfect as Mitchell was indeed “tenacious.” His passion, drive, and love of opera came across so vividly, I was rooting for him all the way! Well done!
