Artist of the Week: Pavel Černoch To Open New ‘Damnation de Faust’ Production in

This week marks the opening of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and with it, a new production of “La Damnation de Faust.” Headlining the cast will be burgeoning tenor Pavel Černoch. The tenor, just 43, hails from the Czech Republic and had his first big break when he debuted at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich in 2009 as Števa in “Jenůfa.”

Since then, he has been a fixture at a number of major European houses around the world, including the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Teatro San Carlo Napoli, Berlin State Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Hamburg State Opera, Stuttgart Opera, Cologne Opera, Opernhaus Zurich, Théatre La Monnaie in Brussels, Opéra National in Paris, Opéra de Lyon, Teatro Real Madrid, Bolshoi Theatre Moscow, the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki and the Glyndebourne Festival. He has appeared in a wide range of repertoire ranging from Italian to French, to Slavic.

He is also coming off a run of “Don Carlo” in Paris, as well as performances as Don José in “Carmen”  in Prague. After “La Damnation,” Černoch will head to the Greek National Opera for some performances of “Tosca,” where he will continue to develop his dramatic repertoire, this time as Mario Cavaradossi.


The tenor appears on a number of recordings including “The Czar’s Bride” from Berlin and Tchaikovsky’s “Iolanta” and Stravinsky’s “Perséphone.” He also appears in a DVD of Faccio’s “Amleto” from the Bregenz Festival in 2016, a DVD of “Rusalka” under Asher Fisher, and a recording of Janacek’s “Glagoltic Mass, The Eternal Gospel.”
