A native of Miami, Florida, Anthony Offerle’s credits include performances with the OperaEstate in Rome, The Cincinnati Opera, International Chamber Orchestra, Dayton Opera, Wyoming Opera, Pacific Opera, Charleston Symphony, Savannah Symphony, Evansville Philharmonic, and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival. He has sung over 30 leading roles including the title roles in Don Giovanni and Don Pasquale, Scarpia in Tosca, Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, and Bartolo in both Il barbiere di Siviglia and Le nozze di Figaro. Equally at home with musical theater repertoire, he has performed the Major General in The Pirates of Penzance, Sir Despard Murgtroyd in Ruddigore, Riff in West Side Story, and Curly in Oklahoma. He created the role of Muffeo in the world-premiere of Stella Sung’s opera The Red Silk Thread: An Epic Tale of Marco Polo in 2014. Upcoming roles include Il Commendatore in Don Giovanni in Italy in 2017 and the Mandarin in Turandot with the Mississippi Opera in 2018. His schedule also includes a return to Cuba for concerts in Havana in November 2017.

An active concert performer, Offerle served as guest baritone soloist in London’s Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral as well as St. Giles Cathedral in Scotland. The Charleston Post and Courier said of his Messiah performance, "Mr. Offerle sang with a rich warm tone and an exciting top." The New York Amsterdam News said of his 2005 recital debut in Manhattan, "Offerle brought to his selections an exceptionally beautiful baritone, fine technical command and considerable interpretive skill. He proved to be a compelling singing-actor." He is represented by Realmuto Artists Management of New York.

Offerle is a two-time Metropolitan Opera auditions district winner and regional finalist, a national winner of the Federation of Music Clubs vocal competition, and one of only ten Americans selected to compete in the quadrennial Marian Anderson International Vocal Competition. He has studied with such renowned teachers as Italo Tajo and Andrew B. White at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
