Countertenor Keith Wehmeier is a native of St. Louis, Missouri. Praised by the San Diego Story for his “bright, agile vocal technique”, he most recently portrayed the role of Polinesso in Handel’s Ariodante with Opera NEO. Prior to this, Keith performed the role of the Sorceress in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas while in his Post-Graduate studies at the New England Conservatory.
In his debut season, Keith played the role of Oberon in Benjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Miami Music Festival to great acclaim. The South Florida Classical Review said of his performance, “Keith Wehmeier’s countertenor voice was both strong and dulcet and he phrased the text with subtlety.” He looks forward to this new season of ensemble debuts, concert work, and operatic role debuts throughout the United States.
