Equally at home in both contemporary and traditional repertoire, this tenor has been universally praised by the international press with The New York Times writing ‘Peter’s strong singing and magisterial tenor (was the) strongest vocal showing of the night pumping out sound and effect’.
Peter has just reprised the roles of Don Gomez in 'Die Drei Pintos' with the Orquestra Gulbenkian under Lawrence Foster in Lisbon, Portugal and Tony in ‘The Servant’ by Marco Tutino at Teatro Rossini, Lugo, Italy to critical acclaim.
His engagements include his Czech Republic and Hungarian premieres with the role of Tony in 'The Servant', creating the role of Salamone Mortara in the world premier of 'Il caso Mortara' by Francesco Cilluffo which caused a sensation in both Italy and New York. Other roles include B.F.Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly) in New York and in concert in Berlin, Germany, Camille in the New York premier of Thèrése Raquin by Tobias Picker at Dicapo Opera Theatre, Daniel in the Scottish premier of Manifest Destiny by Keith Burstein at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Edgardo (Lucia di Lammermoor) with Theater Passau in Germany, Cavaradossi (Tosca) for National Touring Opera (USA), and Don Gomez (Die Drei Pintos) with Wexford Festival Opera. Peter made his European debut as Rodolfo (La Bohème) and Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni) with Theater Dortmund in Germany.
Mr.Furlong’s concert appearances include the aforementioned Pinkerton in Berlin, Macduff in Macbeth with the Orchestra Filharmonica Europea (Milano), the tenor soloist in Verdi’s Messa da Requiem with the Littleton (CO) Symphony Orchestra, for the remembrance of the Columbine H.S. victims, the demanding tenor solo in Carmina Burana for the Breckenridge Music Festival, and the tenor solo in Handel’s Messiah for the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado.
