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

Jagde begins the 2017/18 season in his highly anticipated role debut as Calaf in Turandot at San Francisco Opera, under the baton of Nicola Luisotti. He then travels to Switzerland for his debut at Opernhaus Zürich as Cavaradossi (Tosca) and sings the role later in the season at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
