A full lyric operatic Tenor, Ian Kelly is beginning to make a name for himself as one of the top emerging tenors in the pacific northwest. After years in professional musical theatre and barbershop quartet singing, Ian made the switch to classical voice. After studying opera in Lucca, Italy last summer, Ian has began to work with Opera Idaho. He could been seen last season in Opera Idaho’s productions of West Side Story and Aida. Ian’s other credits include Roger in Rent, Juan Peron in Evita, Beadle Bamford in Sweeney Todd, and a number of years performing onboard Celebrity Cruise Lines. Ian is currently finishing his vocal performance degree at Boise State University under the tutelage of Doctor Laura Rushing-Raynes, and currently resides in Meridian, Idaho with his wife Sabrina and one year old daughter Rosalie.
