In the 2016–17 season, tenor Russell Thomas (Loge) returns to The Metropolitan Opera to sing Ismaele in Verdi’s Nabucco; Canadian Opera Company and Lyric Opera of Chicago as Pollione in Bellini’s Norma; and Los Angeles Opera as Cavaradossi in Puccini’s Tosca. He also makes his debut at the Salzburg Festival singing the title role in Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito. Concert highlights this season include performances of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the Detroit and Atlanta Symphony Orchestras, Florestan in Beethoven’s Fidelio with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood. Future engagements include debuts with the Bavarian Staatsoper, Washington National Opera, and Netherlands Opera, and returns to San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Canadian Opera Company, and Oper Frankfurt. Mr. Thomas’s role debuts last season included Turiddu in Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana with Deutsche Oper Berlin, the title role of a new production of Verdi’s Stiffelio with Oper Frankfurt, Don José in Bizet’s Carmen with Canadian Opera Company, and Florestan in Beethoven’s Fidelio with Cincinnati Opera.
