The summer of 2012 has been a very exciting one for rising young tenor Brian Jagde. After being called in on very short notice to replace the previous Cavaradossi in Tosca at the Santa Fe Opera, Mr. Jagde confidently stepped up to the challenge and has enjoyed tremendous success with each of his performances. His 12/13 season will undoubtedly see even more success with several exciting debuts and engagements including Tosca at the San Francisco Opera and Deutsche Oper Berlin, Rodolfo in La Bohéme with Lorin Maazel and the Munich Philharmonic, and the title role in Les Contes d’Hoffman at the NCPA in Beijing, all while finishing up his final year as an Adler Fellow at the San Francisco Opera. His visit to Beijing will be his second one this year – he recently appeared there in the 2012 Operalia competition where he won second prize and the special Birgit Nilsson prize for his highly praised interpretations of Wagner-Strauss repertoire. With each performance, Mr. Jagde is proving that he is one of the most exciting new lyric tenors on the scene today.
