Tenor Jonathan Tetelman will replace Piotr Beczala in “La Bohème” at Tanglewood.
Beczala was supposed to take on his signature role alongside soprano Kristine Opolais but opted for performing in “Lohengrin” at the Bayreuth Festival when Roberto Alagna stepped down from the production.
Tetelman sang his first performances of Rodolfo in the Puccini masterpiece at the Fujian Grand Theatre in China. He has also appeared in performances at the Milan Festival Orchestra, the Martina Arroyo Foundation, Opera North, the New York Opera Exchange, Teatro Grattacielo, the Pittsburgh Festival Opera, the New Orleans Opera, the Berkshire Opera Festival, and the Gulf Shore Opera, among others. Per his official website, he has upcoming engagements with the English National Opera, the Komische Oper Berlin, Opera del Teatro Solís, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, and the Virginia Opera.
In addition to Opolais, Tetelman will appear alongside Susanna Phillips, Franco Vassallo, Elliot Madore, Luca Pisaroni, and Paul Plishka, among others. Andris Nelsons conducts.
