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.

‘La Gioconda’ at the Gran Teatre del Liceu

Brian Jagde, a tenor (debutant at the Liceu) who gave us an Enzo with veristic features, homogeneous in all the ranges, with power in his emission and a fantastic 'Vien!' culminating in a 'Cielo e mar' of contrasting emotions.
