Tenor Taka Komagata brings his earnest vocal style to the classical music world internationally. His unique voice and genuine interpretation bring new life to his repertoire. Taka performed the title role in Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg in May 2018 at Longy School of Music of Bard College. Recent engagements include the leading male role of Charles in The Finishing School by Franz von Suppe and Federico in L’amico Fritz by Mascagni. His partial roles include Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore, Ferrando in Così fan tutte, Tamino in Die Zauberflöte, Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus by Strauss, and Edwin in Kálmán’s Die Csárdásfürstin.
Mr. Komagata is the co-founder of Balcony Series, an ensemble opera troupe that creates flash operas in unexpected locations. He appeared with the Boston Camerata in Daniel and City of Fools and performed in a staged production of Schubert’s Winterreise directed by Jane Struss, hailed as a “profound rendition” by Boston’s ARTery.
Taka is currently a Master of Music candidate in Vocal Performance at Longy School of Music of Bard College, studying under Carol Mastrodomenico. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Hawaii Pacific University (‘15), and a Certificate of Merit in Voice at New England Conservatory of Music (‘16). He received third prize in the Yokohama International Music Competition (‘16).
