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.

“Crocetto en Jagde debuteren in Amsterdam”

In the upcoming performance of Verdi's requiem in the NTR ZaterdagMatinee, two young heavyweights from America make their Amsterdam debut: soprano Leah Crocetto and tenor Brian Jagde. A conversation about Verdi and his masterly death mass.


Best of 2017 Highlights

Tenor Brian Jagde, in his role debut as besotted Prince Calaf, starred in both casts. He again proved his winning combination of looks and talent."


Ailyn Pérez & Brian Jagde Deliver ‘Puccini with Passion’ For Time In Kids Benefit Concert

The event, entitled “Puccini with Passion” was hosted by Dana Tang, Andy Darrell, and Lily and Wilson Ervin, and was a benefit concert for the Time In Kids Arts Initiative, an organization that aims to “ transform the lives and learning of chronically disadvantaged public school children, ensuring that equality, opportunity and access – to the arts and through the arts – become staples of public education."


‘Turandot’ revival at San Francisco Opera

Jagde undertook the role in promising fashion for the first time in September, but since then his command of the assignment has only grown more assured and polished ... best of all was his “Nessun dorma” in Act 3, a grand and glorious rendition that combined huge reserves of sound with phrasing of untrammeled eloquence."
