Don Giovanni was premiered at the Estates Theater in Prague #otd in 1787.

It’s my favorite Mozart opera and I love singing Don Ottavio. Everybody keeps calling him “pusillanimous” but I never got that—I think he’s a bad ass.

Speaking of bad-asses, #fabioluisi is my favorite Don G interpreter and he leads the best band in the land @metorchestra here with me from Ottavio’s Act 1 aria…

SERENADE FOR APPLEBY, RALSKE, AND STRINGS (OF THE METROPOLITAN OPERA CHAMBER ENSEMBLE), OP. 31 by Benjamin Britten.

Tomorrow, Sunday October 23 at @carnegiehall in Weill Recital Hall. Tell your friends!

You won’t hear the horn in “Sonnet,” the final song of Benjamin Britten’s SERENADE FOR TENOR, HORN, AND STRINGS because the horn player is meant to skulk off stage at that moment to position himself to play the lonely postlude on natural horn somewhere in the distance. But you will get to hear this excerpt as well as @erikralske on horn, Gareth Morrell at the podium, and the glorious strings on the @metorchestra performing my most-frequently-performed-concert-repertoire by one of my favorite composers to sing.

Join us @carnegiehall in Weill Recital Hall on Sunday OCTOBER 23 at 2pm.

Tonight we kick off @sfopera’s centennial season with the world premiere of John Adams’ genius “Antony & Cleopatra.” This is my third role at the War Memorial Opera House, the second John Adams role I’ve created, and the single highest honor of my career to create this rich role which the great composer wrote for me.

Opera takes so many hands and so much work to make possible, so I send my gratitude, admiration, and praise to all the artists and employees of San Francisco Opera who made tonight possible.

The countdown begins…

Meet Augustus, né Octavius: Triumvir, Emperor, Villain?!? In this weekend’s world premiere of "Antony and Cleopatra” @sfopera I get to create John Adams’s take on Shakespeare’s cunning Caesar.

This opera is a work of immense compositional and dramaturgical skill, and this role is among the richest characters vocally and psychologically I’ve had the luck to portray. And with our fearless and unfathomably talented @eskconductor leading the @sfoperaorchestra, this will be a premiere for the music history books!

I recently sat down to discuss this character and the opera in which this ambitious “young Roman boy” prevails over his erstwhile ally, Antony @geraldfinleyofficial, and the mighty queen of the Nile herself @amina_edris.

▫️ I’ve been listening to Graham Johnson’s recordings and reading his copious program notes on song programs ever since Prof. Susan Youens played DFL (D. 933) in music history my junior year of undergrad. It was a thrill to finally hear him perform live for the first time recently…Winterreise with @benjaminapplbaritone at @klavierfestival.

Happy birthday Maestro and thanks for the beautiful music and the education!

An excerpt from our dress rehearsal of The Diary of One Who Disappeared (Janáček) from Seiji Ozawa Hall at the @tanglewoodmusicfestival.

I had the honor in 2018 to perform Schumann’s Widmung with Emanuel Ax as an encore after his performance with the @pittsburgh_symphony_orchestra. Four years later, it was wonderful to reunite for this very special project at Tanglewood with the @loreleiensemble.
