PHILIP LOWERY (Soldier)
Phil Lowery is delighted to be involved with this presentation of The Soldier’s Tale, having made its acquaintance earlier this year, narrating it for the Russian Chamber Orchestra, and playing all the spoken parts.
Phil performs frequently with Lamplighters Music Theatre, and has acted, directed, and/or stage managed for several local theatre companies, including Central Works, Altarena Playhouse, Berkeley Playhouse, Dreamweavers, Drama Mamas, Willows Theatre, and Shotgun Players, where he most recently appeared as Wagner in Faust, Part I.
In the early ‘90’s, Phil co-founded Berkeley Contemporary Opera, where he produced eight operas over three seasons and directed The Rake's Progress, The Turn of the Screw, Death in Venice, Candide, Beauty and the Beast and Antigona Furiosa. He has since directed for Pocket Opera (The Bandits, Don Pasquale, and The Haunted Manor), Berkeley Opera (The Tales of Hoffmann, Bluebeard’s Castle, and L’Enfant et les Sortilèges), North Bay Opera (Macbeth and Eugene Onegin), Lamplighters Music Theatre (Candide, A Little Night Music, The Mikado, and La Perichole) and worked once with Kent Nagano on a semi-staged reading of Mussorgsky’s Khovanshchina.
Phil holds a BA in Music and Theatre from Lewis & Clark College, and an MA in Dramatic Arts from UC Berkeley.
