American tenor Brian Jagde has quickly emerged as one of the most engaging and exciting artists of his generation.

Brian Jagde launches his 2018/19 season with a return to the San Francisco Opera as Cavaradossi in a new production of Puccini's Tosca. He then travels to London's Royal Opera House, starring as Don José in Bizet's Carmen, and sings Calaf in a new production of Puccini's Turandot at Palermo's Teatro Massimo. In 2019, Jagde embarks on a series of greatly anticipated house and role debuts. He will sing Turiddu in Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Luigi in Puccini's Il tabarro, in concert with the Dresdner Philharmonie, captured for a future album release. Jagde then sings his first Enzo Grimaldi in Ponchielli's La Gioconda at the Gran Teatre del Liceu and makes his premiere appearance with the Opéra national de Paris, debuting as Don Alvaro in Verdi's epic La forza del Destino at the Opéra Bastille.

Interview with Brian Jagde

American tenor Brian Jagde discusses his performance in Georges Bizet’s infamous opera, the nomadic life of a singer and why the art form remains relevant today.


‘Tosca’ at San Francisco Opera

Tenor Brian Jagde, in his finest company outing to date, was a big-voiced Cavaradossi, producing firm, heroic sound throughout. His impassioned performance of the Act III aria, “E lucevan le stelle,” was a highlight of the evening.
