Paul Gay

Paul Gay (born November 8, 1968[1]) is a notable French bass-baritone who sings opera and other classical forms. He has performed in France, Germany, Russia, and the United States, with a number of significant companies and directors.

Gay's singing as Temrouk in Georges Bizet's Ivan IV was criticized by "Classics".[2] He showed some early promise, according to auditions.[3] He was termed "a reliable Masetto" in Mozart's Don Giovanni.[4]

Gay has secured some title roles. On February 2, 2008, he appeared on NPR in the title role in Édouard Lalo's The King of Ys.[5] In August 2009, he performed the title role of St. Paul in Felix Mendelssohn's 1836 oratorio, St. Paul, with Leon Botstein conducting.[6]
