David Smyth is a Boston-based baritone, who has performed with many local companies and ensembles including Piccola Opera, NEMPAC Opera Project, Cambridge Chamber Ensemble, and the Cantata Singers. He has sung roles in opera, operetta, and oratorio, and recent highlights include the Count in Nozze di Figaro, Escamillo in Carmen, Harapha (cover) in Handel’s Samson, and Florian in Princess Ida. David discovered a passion for classical singing shortly after completing his doctoral studies in mathematics, and continues to study privately while also working as an associate professor in the math department at Tufts University. He has interdisciplinary research interests in mathematical logic, philosophy, and cognitive science, motivated by his long-term goal of proving that the world needs less AI and more opera.
