David Saslav has appeared onstage making music since early childhood. David’s opera appearances spanned the late 1990s and early 2000s. He sang the dual role of Don Basilio / Don Curzio in Bay Shore Lyric Opera’s 1997 production of Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro,” and Lloyd St. Pierre in David Scott Marley’s 1999 Berkeley Opera production, “Daughter of the Cabinet.” He then premiered the role of The Pilot in Mark Alburger’s 2000 opera, “The Little Prince.” He portrayed Haemon in Alburger’s, “Antigone,” and Alan Shepard in Dave Meckler’s, “Tocatta di Luna: Apollo 14.” He also sang in opera choruses for the City Opera Theater (Janacek’s “Jenufa”) and two Lamplighter Gala productions. Since his opera days, Saslav has focused on solo recital work. He currently resides in central Montana with his wife Melissa Smith.
