Tenor, Russell Thomas, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s 2014-2015 Artist-in-Residence, is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting vocal and dramatic talents on the international opera and concert scene.
This season, Mr Thomas will take part in the National Opera’s Peter Sellars production of The Gospel According to the Other Mary, followed by several new roles: Pillione in Norma with the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia, Spain and the title-role in Faust with Michigan Opera Theater and Manrico in II Trovatore.
Future engagements include The Metropolitan Opera, the Seattle Opera, the Oper Frankfurt, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Canadian Opera Company and a debut at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
