Jamie Barton and Russell Thomas make their house debuts at Bayerische Staatsoper in Il trovatore as Azucena and Manrico respectively. Asher Fisch conducts four performances on 7, 11, 14, and 17 October.
2018/19 will see further debuts for Russell Thomas who sings his first staged performances as Otello at Canadian Opera Company under Johannes Debus, and at Deutsche Oper Berlin under Paolo Arrivabeni. In concert he joins the Dallas Symphony for Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde under Donald Runnicles.
