Biography
Russell Thomas by Dario Acosta

Tenor Russell Thomas was the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s 2014–15 artist-in-residence. Mr. Thomas’s current season begins with his role debut as Turiddu in Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana with Deutsche Oper Berlin, followed by Pollione in Bellini’s Norma with Los Angeles Opera and three more role debuts: the title role in Verdi’s Stiffelio in a new production at Oper Frankfurt, Don José in Bizet’s Carmen at Canadian Opera Company, and Florestan in Beethoven’s Fidelio with Cincinnati Opera. In concert, he will sing Lazarus in John Adams’s The Gospel According to the Other Mary in Strasbourg and in recital at London’s Wigmore Hall. Future engagements include debuts with Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Salzburg Festival, as well as returns to The Metropolitan Opera and Canadian Opera Company. Mr. Thomas’s last season started with performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, where he returned for Christmas concerts, solo recitals, and master classes as part of his residency. He participated in Peter Sellars’s English National Opera production of The Gospel According to the Other Mary, followed by Pollione in Norma with San Francisco Opera and Valencia’s Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia; the title role in Gounod’s Faust with Michigan Opera Theatre; Manrico in Verdio’s Il trovatore with Cincinnati Opera; and Ismaele in Verdi’s Nabucco with Seattle Opera. Previous engagements include concert performances of The Gospel According to the Other Mary (Ravinia Festival), Verdi’s I masnadieri (Washington Concert Opera), the title role in Verdi’s Don Carlo (Deutsche Oper Berlin debut), Andres in Berg’s Wozzek (The Metropolitan Opera), the title role in Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann (Seattle Opera), and the Prince in Dvořák’s Rusalka (Opera North Carolina). Russell Thomas made his New York Philharmonic debut in the Finale from Act I of Mozart’s Don Giovanni as part of Philharmonic 360, co-presented with Park Avenue Armory, in June 2012, and he most recently appeared with the Philharmonic in January 2015 in the Verdi Requiem; both performances were led by Music Director Alan Gilbert.
