Singer, Bass-Baritone
Represented by:Pinnacle Arts
Jason Budd is receiving high accolades and recognition for his performances and has quickly become a well respected singer with great command of the stage. David Bower of Opera News declares "Jason Budd's Dulcamara was a good-natured quack, nimble of limb and voice; (he) sang with vocal heft that made the already-small Drury (theatre) seem like a phone booth." His portrayals of even such small roles as the Sacristan in Tosca have been singled out by critics with John Koopman of Opera News stating "The fine Sacristan of bass-baritone Jason Budd must also be noted."

Previously residing in Orlando, he has performed with Orlando Opera in such roles as, the title role in Gianni Schicchi, Crespel/Luther in Les Contes d'Hoffmann, Benoit/Alcindoro in La Boheme, Sir Joseph in HMS Pinafore, Antonio in Le Nozze di Figaro, Melchoir in Amahl and the Night Visitors, and Speaker/First Priest in The Magic Flute. He has also appeared with Augusta Opera, Opera Birmingham, Piedmont Opera, Lyric Opera Cleveland and Opera Carolina in such roles as Sacristan in Tosca, Dulcamara in The Elixir of Love, Zuniga in Carmen, and Bartolo in Le Nozze di Figaro. In the summer of 2002 he portrayed the title role in Verdi's Falstaff with the Opera Theatre of Lucca in Italy.

Engagements for the 2003-2004 season included Monterone in Rigoletto and Don Florito in Luisa Fernanda with Orlando Opera and the Sergeant of Police in Pirates of Penzance with Nashville Opera (director Carroll Freeman), "A performance highlight was the bumbling antics of Jason Budd, who played the Sergeant of Police...With his imposing presence and mutton-chop sideburns, he was the perfect lumbering, yet well-meaning sergeant."

Engagements for the 2004-2005 season included a return to Orlando Opera as Pooh-Bah in The Mikado and 1st Soldier/5th Jew in Salome, a debut with Michigan Opera Theatre as Sacristan/Jailer in Tosca, and Bartolo in Il Barbiere di Siviglia with Lyric Opera of Cleveland. Upcoming engagements for the 2005-2006 season will include Dr. Bartolo in Le Nozze di Figaro with Toledo Opera and a return to Orlando as the Sacristan in Tosca with Carol Vaness in the title role.
