Gary Lakes

Lakes as Siegmund at the Met

Born 26 September 1950 in Woodward, Oklahoma, Lakes hoped to become a professional football player, but an injury frustrated this aspiration, and Lakes turned towards... opera! He made his debut as Froh in Seattle in 1981 and was at the Met from 1986, specializing in heldentenor roles like Siegmund, Samson, Kaiser, Dmitrij or Florestan.
