AJ Glueckert

Vocalists — Tenor

“Taking the place of Jay Hunter Morris, who withdrew from the run for personal reasons, the clarion, sensitive tenor AJ Glueckert had a solid Met debut as Erik, the earnest huntsman who loves Senta.” —Anthony Tommasini, New York Times, April 26, 2017 - Erik in 'Der fliegende Holländer' at the Metropolitan Opera

“AJ Glueckert, a member of the ensemble since this season, is thrilling as Lyonel with a bright lyric tenor, which has long been absent at the Frankfurt Opera. Wonderfully even, free and easy, he shapes the aria “Ach so fromm” and exudes in full strength with a round, soft intensity.” —Christiane Francke, Opernnetz, October 18, 2016 - Lyonel in 'Martha' at Oper Frankfurt

“AJ Glueckert’s gleaming, meaty tenor was an ideal fit for the grueling demands of Bacchus (and the Tenor). We are so used to be being happy enough with anyone who can bray his manageable way through the role, that is was a delight to revel in Mr. Glueckert’s sturdy, secure and attractive rendition.” —James Sohre, Opera Today, June 27, 2016 - Bacchus in 'Ariadne auf Naxos' at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis

“A.J. Glueckert, another debut artist, displayed a gleaming, effortless tenor sound and he did not shy away from the high lying vocal writing that Dvořák gives to the Prince.” —George Dansker, Opera News, February 2015 - Prince in 'Rusalka' at New Orleans Opera

“His fine rendition of Walther von Stolzing’s Prize Song from Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg evidenced his potential as a Wagnerian lyric tenor.” —Jason Victor Serinus, San Francisco Classical Voice, November 29, 2013 - Adler Concert at San Francisco Opera


Tenor AJ Glueckert has been praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for his “superb,” “soaring” voice with “polished high notes.”
