Jordan Speranzo is super jazzed to be stepping temporarily in to the stylish yet functional ears and tail of Super Smash Opera’s true Star(fox), Fox McCloud. Jordan will soon be attending Carnegie Mellon University for music composition. He is a baritone, and he studies voice with Dan Teadt, and acting with Sean Lenhart(Luigi/Gannon). They say that experience is the best teacher, and watching your teacher play an unhinged green Mario is certainly an experience. Jordan recently performed with the Pittsburgh Savoyards as Pish-Tush in “The Mikado”, and with the JCC high school musical as Aldolpho in “The Drowsy Chaperone” and Luigi Gaudi in “Lucky Stiff” and he has been in the ensemble for several shows with the Pittsburgh Savoyards and Undercroft Opera. In addition he has acted for two short films, “Exposures” and “At least they could have warned us”. Jordan is an avid classical musical fan, A card carrying member of the Society for Creative Anachronism (He likes to hit people with sticks), and an all around Super Nerd. He doesn’t actually have any Super nerd powers, like the ability to fly, or recite the entirety of The princess Bride by heart (anymore). But hey, if every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn’t have hot dogs. Jordan met Liz Rishel(Zelda/Sheik) and Bonnie Bogovich(Link/Jigglypuff) through “Evenings in Quarantine, The Zombie Opera”, where he played the role of Aidan Bower (his first operatic role!). The rest, as they say, is history (only with a lot more singing). To receive green tinted cotton sheets exchanged for goods and services, Jordan will occasionally work at Mr. Smalls Funhouse as a barback. Jordan enjoys constantly working on projectis, and he has a lot of (sometimes literal) irons in the fire, including some top secret ones that you are not important enough to know about. nah nah nah boo boo. Jordan is incredibly thankful for this smashing operatunity, and would like to thank his amazing teachers, his wonderful girlfriend Alex, his family and friends, and all of you! Enjoy the show!
