He has as since appeared there as Silvio in Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, Malatesta in Donizetti’s Don Pasquale, Schaunard in Puccini’s La bohème, Count Dominik in R. Strauss’s Arabella, the Huntsman in Dvořák’s Rusalka, and Yamadori in Puccini’s Madam Butterfly. Other recent highlights include the title role in Rachmaninoff’s Aleko at Opera Carolina, Malatesta at the Cincinnati Opera, Mercutio in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette at the Festival Internacional de Ópera Alejandro Granda in Peru, the title role of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at Germany’s Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg Festival and on tour with the Mikhailovsky Theatre in Japan, Silvio at the Teatro Municipal de Santiago, and a recital with the Friends of Chamber Music Society of Miami with Ken Noda. Mr. Lavrov was also a member of the Young Artist Program at Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre, where he sang the roles of Moralès in Bizet’s Carmen, Shchelkalov in Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, and Robert in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta. In the 2016–17 season he returns to The Met for La bohème and makes his debuts at the Zurich Opera in Pagliacci, Teatro Real in Madrid in Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Golden Cockerel, and the Atlanta Opera in Don Pasquale.
