BIOGRAPHY

 

WITH AN EMANATING CAREER THAT INCLUDES LAUDED PERFORMANCES SPANNING OPERA, THEATRE, AS WELL AS FILM, CURTIS BANNISTER IS ESTABLISHING HIMSELF AS ONE OF THE MOST DYNAMIC MULTI-GENRED ARTISTS OF HIS GENERATION.

 

 

Curtis Bannister, recently described as “radiating with slowly simmering energy”, (TimeOut Magazine New York), is known for his “thrilling tenor voice and a towering stage presence” (The Hearld Journal) on many of the nation's top opera & theatre stages. His 2019/20 live performance engagements include his debut at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a Street Singer/Celebrant (cover) in Bernstein's MASS, his debut as Sid Sorokin THE PAJAMA GAME at Theatre at the Center, Rev. Jerome Mitchell (cover) in the world premiere of Dan Shore’s FREEDOM RIDE with Chicago Opera Theatre, and Ragotski in CANDIDE with The Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Yannick Nezet-Seguin and featuring Bradley Cooper and Carrie Mulligan. Future projects on Bannister's schedule are set to be produced in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles.


In addition to his career on the stage, Curtis has also begun a successful emerging career in film. Bannister will be seen as Marquis on the new Apple TV+ program, DICKINSON, to be released in late-Fall 2020. He was also on seasons 6 & 7 on NBC's hit drama, CHICAGO FIRE, in the guest-starring role of Reimers. In addition to several current and future appearances on national TV commercials and ad campaigns, Curtis is also slated to appear in a new series on a new soon to-be-announced streaming platform later this year.
