Lauded by Opera News as having “showed vocal confidence [...] his luminous head voice blooming with expansive and penetrating phrases,” and by Opera Today as bringing "the performance to an awestruck standstill with his exquisitely (singing). He cuts a fine figure throughout the performance, with an intense stage presence”, Peter Scott Drackley has performed such operatic roles as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La bohème, Gerald in Delibes’ Lakmé, Tom Rakewell in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, Male Chorus in Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia ,and Alfredo in Verdi’s La Traviata, a role he partially performed in concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. Mr. Drackley is also a frequent concert soloist, having sung in Handel’s Messiah, Schubert’s Mass in G, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Mozart’s Requiem, and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. He also debuted the role of Antonin Scalia in Derrick Wang’s Opera Scalia/Ginsburg at the Supreme Court, a concert that was featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.
A student of Alexandra LoBianco, Mr. Drackley has performed with the Utah Festival Opera, Skylight Music Theatre, Baltimore Concert Opera, the Strathmore Mansion, the National Cathedral, Teatro Grattacielo, Lyric Opera Baltimore, and as a soloist at Carnegie Hall.
