Brian Jagde – Calaf in Puccini’s “Turandot”
Last season Jagde made a splash in his role debut as Radames in Verdi’s “Aida” in San Francisco. Since then he has been making debuts around the world and has become one of the most promising spinto tenors of his generation. This season audiences will have a chance to see his first Calaf which also means a new interpretation of “Nessun Dorma,” the show-stopping aria in the opera. And Jagde will have two excellent sopranos to sing alongside him – Martina Serafin and Nina Stemme.
