The tenor is currently performing in “Rigoletto” at the Royal Opera House and is slated to take on “Il Corsaro” at the Palau de les Arts in Valencia as well as “La Bohème” and “Lucia di Lammermoor” at the Metropolitan Opera. He also returns to Opera Frankfurt and the Los Angeles Opera for “Rigoletto.”
