Mr. Kearns made his official U.S. Grand Opera debut as the lead tenor in the role of "Edgardo" in Gaetano Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor with Opera Naples, FL. Since then, he has starred as: Don Jose in the Dun Laoghaire/ Rathdown Glasthule Opera Company's production of Georges Bizet's “Carmen”; the lead tenor with the Royal Dublin Society in “The Lily of Killarney” (part of "The Irish Ring" trilogy) which toured North America; the lead tenor for "Don Ottavio," in Mozart's “Don Giovanni” at the Lismore Music Festival; and others. Upon moving to the U.S., Kearns returned to Opera Naples as the lead tenor in Charles Gounod's “Faust,” a role he also performed with Opera Ireland (nominated for Best Production in the Irish Times Theater Awards). Other roles include Fenton in Giuseppe Verdi's “Falstaff” (in Montepulciano, Italy) and Norino in Donizetti's most-performed opera, “L'elisir d'amore,” with Gulfshore Opera in Naples, FL, among others. Kearns has performed in the most prestigious venues around the world, from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House. He has also performed for three U.S. presidents and for Pope Francis at a pre-Mass Concert in Philadelphia. He recently released his first solo album, “With a Song in My Heart."
