The Saint Petersburg Philharmonia has announced that Leonardo Capalbo will sing the role of the tenor soloist in Verdi’s “Requiem” later this month.

The tenor recently made his Perm Opera debut as Rodolfo in Puccini’s “La Bohème” under the baton of Teodor Currentzis, who will lead the MusicAeterna Orchestra during the upcoming concert. The tenor recently completed a run of “Don Carlos” at the Opera Vlaanderen and is set to sing a production of “Rigoletto” at the Komische Oper Berlin and “Les Contes d’Hoffmann” in Tokyo. He also sings “Iris” at the Teatro Real.

Capalbo will join soprano Zarina Abaeva, mezzo-soprano Clementine Margaine, and bass Evgeny Stravinsky in the performance and they will be joined by the MusicAeterna Choir.

The performance will take place at 8 pm on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019.
