Tenor Aaron Halevy began his study of opera in 2009 when he participated in the Laboratori di Ricerca e di Perfezionamento Musicale, in the Tuscan mountains of Italy, where he studied Bel Canto technique with renowned soprano, Antonella Banaudi. In spring of 2013 he left a career in politics to sing Pinkerton in his professional debut in Bel Cantanti's production of Madama Butterfly. This has been followed by the role of Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus; Tanzenmeister/Scaramuccio in Singer's Theater of Washington's production of Ariadne Auf Naxos; Beppe in Maryland Lyric Opera's production of Pagliacci; as well as the roles of Aegisth/Junger Deiner in Manhattan Opera Studio's production of Elektra. In 2014 Aaron joined the Opera Singer's Initiative, based out of New York City, which has brought him concert performances at Lincoln Center and other venues in the greater Manhattan area. Aaron's 2015 roles include Don Ottavio with DC's In Series in their production of Don Giovanni; and Benedict in Sterling Opera's Béatrice et Bénédict.
