Scott Wilde, born in Wisconsin, USA, graduated from the Juilliard School in New York and gave his operatic debut as 2nd Soldier/Salome at the Baltimore Opera. Early guest engagements led the bass to the New York City Opera, the Washington Opera, Opera Theater of St. Louis, and the San Francisco Opera. During his first season at the San Francisco Opera, he was celebrated for roles in Boris Godunov, La Forza del Destino, Andrea Chénier, and Christophe Colomb. Further successful roles in his following five seasons at San Francisco Opera were Monterone/Rigoletto, Lord Rocheford/Anna Bolena, and Dr. Grenvil/La Traviata.
Following San Francisco, Scott Wilde made his European debut at the Dublin Grand Opera as Il Commendatore/Don Giovanni. This success was followed by his debut in Spain as Sarastro in The Magic Flute at El Teatro Principal de Palma de Mallorca. During his subsequent steady engagement at the Semperoper Dresden in Germany, he extended his repertoire with roles such as Eremit/Der Freischütz, Holsteiner/Friedenstag, Truffaldino/Ariadne auf Naxos, and König/Aida before his international career as a freelance singer began.
As Sprecher in The Magic Flute, Scott Wilde returned to the San Francisco Opera, where he subsequently performed the roles of Abimélech/Samson et Dalila and Hans Foltz/Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Further, he sang the role of Jason in the world premiere of Rolf Liebermann’s Medea in Bern, which was followed by a re-invitation to the Semperoper Dresden as Tom in Un Ballo in Maschera and to the opera house in Tours, where he sang the part of King Marke in concert versions of Tristan und Isolde.
Wilde rapidly established himself as a guest singer at the opera houses in Toulouse, Amsterdam, Geneva, Montpellier, and Madrid, where he emerged in the classic bass roles and, like recently at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, in Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District. This performance was followed by his highly successful debut at the Opéra Nationale de Paris under James Conlon and Peter Mussbach in Dusapin’s Perela, L`homme de fumée. Since then, he is a most welcome guest in Paris and was a part of various productions, including The Magic Flute, Strauss’ Salome, and Alban Berg’s Lulu.
During the past seasons, Scott Wilde performed at Teatro Real de Madrid  as Bonze in Madama Butterfly, the Nationale Opera Amsterdam in Rosenkavalier under Marc Albrecht, in the contemporary opera Benjamin, Dernière Nuit by the composer Michel Tabachnik under Bernhard Kontarsky at the Opéra de Lyon, and at the Buxton Festival as Rocco in Beethoven’s Leonore.
In the season 2017/18 he will, among other things, take on the role of Tomasso in Eugen d’Albert’s opera Tiefland at Théatre du Capitole Toulouse under the musical direction of Claus Peter Flor. In addition, he will return to Teatro Real de Madrid to perform the roles of Carl Olsen in Weill’s Street Scene and The Recorder of Norwich in David McVicar’s new production of Britten’s Gloriana under the baton of Ivor Bolton.
