Hailed for his “full, exciting lyric baritone” (Opera News) and “elegant lyricism and responsive musicality” (The New York Times), Sean Michael Plumb is one of the most dynamic and compelling baritones of his generation.

In the 2023-2024 season, Sean returns to

The Metropolitan Opera for La bohème and the Bayerische Staatsoper as Barbiere, Harlekin, and Schelkalov, while making highly anticipated debuts with Seattle Opera as Rossini's Figaro, 

The Philadelphia Orchestra for Carmina Burana,  and Hong Kong Arts Festival.


"The remarkable baritone Sean Michael Plumb displayed an instrument notable for its evenness of tone and overwhelming beauty. He shaded his genuinely lyric sound with darker, more desperate colors as the narrator grew ever more disillusioned by the caprices of fate."


"...without doing anything radical, the conductor — and one of the vocal soloists in particular — made an unusually strong case for the work. Two forces stood out. One was baritone Sean Michael Plumb, who managed an intimacy that made the distance in the hall disappear. He rightly heard his role as a lieder singer, using a palette of vocal colors to underscore emotion and meaning. The other great presence was the orchestra under Luisi."
