Mr. Corl holds a BA in Music Education and an MA in Opera Performance from Temple University in Philadelphia. He appeared as Papageno in Opera Pacifica’s debut performance of Mozart’s Magic Flute, which featured Metropolitan Opera Star Cyndia Seiden as the Queen of the Night. A versatile and veteran actor and opera performer, Robert has delighted audiences with such roles as Don Jose (Carmen), Canio (Pagliacci), Turridu (Cavalleria Rusticana, and Werther (Werther). Robert performed under contract at the Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas delighting crowds with his daily renditions of such tenor classics as Nessun Dorma and La Donna e Mobile.
