A Twin Cities based singer, actor, and educator, his repertoire covers a vast range of both opera and musical theater, and includes on-camera appearances for History Channel and PBS. Delighted to be making his Opera Columbus and La Traviata debut, Benjamin is known for his “plaintive tenor” being the “soul of the production”. His work is praised as “deeply involving… [Benjamin] completely engages the emotions of the audience”.
Previous engagements include Eugene Onegin with Skylark Opera; La bohème, Assassins, and All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 with Theater Latté Da; Sweeney Todd and Ragtime with Asolo Repertory Theater; Carmen and La fille du regiment with Mill City Summer Opera; and The Manchurian Candidate, The Shining, and La fanciulla del West with Minnesota Opera. Benjamin was a part of the Drama Desk Award winning Cast of All is Calm presented Off-Broadway at the Sheen Center in NYC, and is especially thrilled to become a father at the end of June.
