Giuseppe Filianoti makes his company debut at Canadian Opera Company, as well as his debut as the title role in Roberto Devereux, May 10, 15, 18 & 21 in Toronto. This stunning production (from Dallas Opera) features ornate sets and period costumes, and highlights an incredible cast, including Sondra Radvanovsky as Elisabetta and Russell Braun as Nottingham. The COC orchestra will be led by Maestro Corrado Rovaris, currently serving as Music Director of the Opera Company of Philadelphia.
Mr. Filianoti’s previous performances of Donizetti’s works have been praised for their “Authentic Italianate style” (Chicago Tribune) and “he sang with ease and fluidity…(he) cut a handsome, Byronic figure.” (Opera)
