Anthony Russell

Anthony (Mordechai Tzvi) Russell has worked primarily in the field of opera in the San Francisco Bay and New York Metro areas for the past fifteen years. Highlights include the West Coast premiere of Anthony Davis's X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X and the world premiere of Philip Glass's Appomattox with the San Francisco Opera Company.  

More recently, Anthony has devoted himself to the recital repertoire of Sidor Belarsky (1898-1975), one of the twentieth century’s most prolific performers of cantorial music, Chassidic nigunim and Yiddish art song.


Anthony's continuing development of Belarsky's repertoire has brought him to the stages of the JCC in Manhattan, Symphony Space, the Ashkenaz Festival and Ideacity Conference in Toronto, KlezKanada in the Laurentians and the Montreal Jewish Music Festival. 

Future engagements include international performances of the one-act opera Lilith with Veretski Pass and collaborations with the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
