Peter Scott Drackley has been lauded by Opera News as having “showed vocal confidence […] his luminous head voice blooming with expansive and penetrating phrases.” and by Opera Today as bringing “the performance to an awestruck standstill with his exquisite singing. He cuts a fine figure throughout the performance, with an intense stage presence.” He has performed such operatic roles as Riccardo (Un Ballo in Maschera), Rodolfo (La bohème), Pollione (Norma), Turiddu (Cavalleria Rusticana), and Cavaradossi (Tosca).
Mr. Drackley is a frequent concert soloist, having sung Verdi’s Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis and 9th Symphony, and many others. He also debuted the role of Antonin Scalia in Derrick Wang’s opera Scalia/Ginsburg at the Supreme Court, a concert that was featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, a role he recently performed with Opera Carolina and Opera Grand Rapids.
A mentee of Dramatic Soprano Alexandra LoBianco, Mr. Drackley has performed with Anchorage Opera, Baltimore Concert Opera, Opera Idaho, OperaDelaware, Opera Omaha, LoftOpera, the Strathmore Mansion, the National Cathedral, and as a soloist at Carnegie Hall. Mr. Drackley trained at Peabody Conservatory, as a Studio Artist with Sarasota Opera, and as an Apprentice Artist with Des Moines Metro Opera and Santa Fe Opera.
Recently, Mr. Drackley joined Des Moines Metro Opera as an Ensemble Artist, singing Pirelli (Sweeney Todd), singing Chekalinsky and covering Gherman (Pique Dame). In the spring of 2022, Mr. Drackley will make role debuts as Radamés (Aïda) with Opera Carolina and Calaf (Turandot) with Opera Grand Rapids, and in the summer will make his UK debut with Nevill Holt Opera as Rodolfo (La bohème).
