Artist Of The Week: David Bizic Debuts Enrico In France

By Francisco Salazar

David Bizic is one of today’s most promising baritones, singing all over the world and performing leading roles in his home country of France.

This week, he takes on another milestone in his career singing his first Enrico in “Lucia di Lammermoor.” The baritone will take on the immense role at the Opera de Toulon, a theater where he had great success as Figaro in “Le Nozze di Figaro” in 2016. Now he takes on what most consider one of the most challenging bel canto baritone roles in the repertoire and he will sing alongside a cast that includes Roberto DeBiasio, Serenad Uyar, and Jean Teitgen.

Over the past years, Bizic has quickly become high in demand for his lyrical voice singing at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera, Wiener Staatsoper, Opera de Paris, Grand-Théâtre de Genève, Opéra National de Bordeaux, and the Grand Theatre del Liceu. His repertoire has also grown from singing Massenet, Mozart to Puccini, Tchaikovsky, Bizet, and Donizetti.

For those not present to see his first Enrico, Bizic will make stops in Barcelona, Reims, and Tel Aviv this season singing a variety of roles.


For those not familiar with Bizic’s voice, the baritone is featured in a DVD of Dmitri Tcherniakov’s “Don Giovanni” from Aix-en-Provence. He is also featured on the Met player in the HD performance of Massanet’s “Werther” alongside Jonas Kaufmann, Sophie Koch, and Lisette Oropesa.
