"The bass-baritone Jeongcheol Cha proved the standout in the Juilliard Opera’s production of “Don Pasquale,” which opened on Wednesday evening in the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. He sang with a strong, mellifluous voice as the doddery Don, fully inhabiting the role physically with his arthritic movements, bewildered facial expressions and comic gestures, ultimately rendering the Don a lovable if delusional character." Vivien Schweitzer - New York Times - February 2013
Hailed by the New York Times as a “strong, mellifluous voice,” Jeongcheol Cha recently graduated with an Artist Diploma from The Juilliard School, where he triumphed in the title role of Don Pasquale, to great acclaim.
In the current season, Mr. Cha will return to the Metropolitan Opera in a variety of roles, including Masetto in Don Giovanni, Ceprano in Rigoletto, Gregorio in Roméo et Juliette, and the Cappadocian in Salome, among others. Last season, Mr. Cha created the role of Hosokawa in . . . the world premiere of composer Jimmy Lopez’s opera Bel Canto with Lyric Opera of Chicago, and also performed the Mandarin in Turandot and Yamadori in Madama Butterfly. He was recently heard in the title role of Don Giovanni with the North Carolina Opera and also as Don Basilio in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. In the 2013-14 season, Mr. Cha was heard at the Metropolitan Opera as Yamadori, and as second Watchman in Die Frau ohne Schatten.
