The Grimeborn Festival in London has become one of the most exciting destinations for opera lovers thirsty for something a little different. Every summer they put on a varied program of new works and timeless classics reinterpreted for a new audience. This year they are taking on the ambitious project of Das Rheingold. After great success with last year’s production of The Rape of Lucretia, stage director Julia Burbach and music director Peter Selwyn team up again to mount Richard Wagner’s masterpiece, in a version adapted by Graham Vick and Jonathan Dove. Seth will appear as Alberich, alongside Noel Bouley as Wotan, Philip Sheffield as Loge, and Harriet Williams as Erda.
Seth is appearing as the wily servant Leporello in Roland Schwab's dark, provocative production of Mozart's Don Giovanni. Guiding the soloists, chorus, and orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin will be the young, up-and-coming conductor, Stephan Zilias, and the cast will feature Samuel Dale Johnson as Don Giovanni, Flurina Stucki as Donna Anna, Andrey Danilov as Don Ottavio, and Heidi Stober as Donna Elvira.
Mr. Carico is proud to announce his house and role debut with the Staatsoper Hannover as the tortured and sadistic Baron Scarpia in Puccini’s shocking masterpiece, Tosca. The production will be imagined by the innovative Vasily Barkhatov, whom fans will remember from his collaboration with Seth on the world premiere of Aribert Reimann’s L’invisible at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. The thrilling young cast will also feature Rodrigo Porras Garulo as Cavaradossi and Liene Kinča in the title role, with Kevin John Edusei on the podium.
Graham Vick’s masterful production of Britten’s study of a man's struggle with his obsessions with lost youth, unattainable beauty, and his own impending mortality returns to the Deutsche Oper. Ian Bostridge appears as Aschenbach, Tai Oney as Apollo, and Seth stretches himself to find seven different characters throughout the evening: The Traveler, The Old Fop, The Old Gondolier, The Hotel Manager, The Hotel Barber, The Leader of the Players, and The Voice of Dionysus. Markus Stenz will lead these singers, the orchestra and chorus of Deutsche Oper Berlin, and an enormous cast of supporting characters through this special event.
After his last two wildly successful productions with the Deutsche Oper, Peter Grimes and Billy Budd, David Alden returned to tackle Meyerbeer's quintessential French Grand Opera. The cast includes Erin Morley as Marguerite de Valois, Olesya Golovneva as Valentine, Yosep Kang as Raoul de Nangis, Andrew Harris and Ante Jerkunica as Marcel, Philipp Jekal as Comte de Nevers, Irene Roberts as Urbain, and Seth will be taking on Comte de Saint-Bris. Alexander Vedernikov will be on the podium.
Günter Krämer's landmark production of Die Zauberflöte has been a staple of the Deutsche Oper Berlin's repertoire since 1991. This sensitive, peaceful treatment of Mozart's masterpiece continues to delight audiences of all ages, and will do so for many years to come. Seth is appearing as the wise Speaker under the baton of Daniel Carter, and his castmates will be Patrick Guetti and Tobias Kehrer as Sarastro, Matthew Newlin and Andrey Danilov as Tamino, Aleksandra Jovanovic as the Queen of the Night, Siobhan Stagg and Jacquelyn Stucker as Pamina, and Philipp Jekal as Papageno.
Closing out Deutsche Oper Berlin's four year cycle of Meyerbeer operas is Le prophète, a tale of love and familial duty set against the backdrop of religious strife during the Reformation. Enrique Mazzola returns to familiar territory in Berlin, having conducted two of the previous outings in this cycle, Dinorah and Vasco da Gama. French director Olivier Py will mount the grand production, featuring Gregory Kunde as Jean de Leyden, Clémentine Margaine as Fidès, Elena Tsallagova as Berthe, and Mr. Carico as Oberthal.
To celebrate the completion of their four year cycle of Meyerbeer operas, Deutsche Oper Berlin returns to the piece that started it all, the composer’s early masterpiece, Dinorah. The piece will be presented in concert, featuring members of the original team that created the successful recording of the same piece for CPO Records, available HERE. Enrique Mazzola conducts Sabine Devieilhe as Dinorah, Florian Sempey as Hoël, Philippe Talbot as Corentin, and Carico as The Hunter.
Continuing their commitment to finding lesser known repertoire and bringing it to full life, Deutsche Oper Berlin presents Danish composer Rued Langgaard’s only opera, Antikrist, in a new production from exciting young theater director, Ersan Mondtag. Seth appears as Hate, alongside a remarkable ensemble cast, including Thomas Lehman as Lucifer, Irene Roberts as the Voice of Mystery, Thomas Blondelle as The Mouth Speaking Great Things, and Flurina Stucki as The Great Whore. Stephan Zilias holds the group together, along with the orchestra and chorus of the Deutsche Oper.
After his triumphant debut with the company in 2018 as Joseph De Rocher in Dead Man Walking, Seth returns to Minnesota Opera for another exciting role debut, this time as the titular libertine in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Joining him will be Elaine Alvarez as Donna Anna, Sara Gartland as Donna Elvira, Wm. Clay Thompson as Leporello, and Andres Acosta as Don Ottavio.
