Brandon Cedel, a recent winner of the Met’s National Council Auditions, lent his ample, agile bass-baritone to the comic role of Nerbulone. In February, I encountered Cedel in Opera Philadelphia’s production of Kevin Puts’s 2011 opera “Silent Night,” a brilliantly constructed, if conventional, drama of the First World War. In the few minutes that Cedel was on stage—his character died early—his voice boomed majestically through the dry acoustics of the Academy of Music. Capable of singing anything from Cavalli to Wagner, he may be destined for stardom.
