Zhengyi Bai

Zhengyi Bai

Tenor Zhengyi Bai is currently completing his third year of training in the renowned Adler Fellowship Program at San Francisco Opera. A 2018 participant of the Merola Opera Program, he has been recognized by the San Francisco Chronicle for his “charming verve.”
 
Bai made his San Francisco Opera company debut as Remendado in 2019-2020 season’s Carmen and also appeared as the Dancing Master and Lamplighter in Manon Lescaut later the same season. In the spring of 2021 he performed in San Francisco Opera’s Adlers at the Drive-In concert which heralded SFO’s return to live performance and covered the role of Almaviva in the company’s production of The Barber of Seville. In the 2021-2022 season he will perform the role of the first prisoner in Beethoven’s Fidelio with San Francisco Opera.
 
Born and raised in Shandong province of China, Bai began his studies as a piano student and a collaborative pianist. It was in his junior year in college he discovered his true instrument: his voice. With a solid musical foundation of piano study, Zhengyi Bai flourished in his vocal studies, completing his initial vocal training in Shandong, China, and continuing his opera training from the University of Southern California in the United States.
