Tonight marks Joseph’s final performance as the Duke of Mantua in Verdi’s Rigoletto at the Bayerische Staatsoper as part of the Munich Opera Festival 2013, a role that he reprises with the company in October as well as next May.
However, he remains in Bavaria for one additional concert as part of the festival. Joined by soprano Sondra Radvanovsky, mezzo Ekaterina Gubanova, and bass René Pape, Joseph sings Verdi’s massive Requiem on July 27. The all-star cast of singers, along with the Bayerische Staatsorchester and the Chorus of the Bayerische Staatsoper, perform under the baton of Zubin Mehta (who led Joseph in two sold-out concerts of the same work in Munich earlier this February) in an open-air concert on Max-Josephs-Platz, which starts at 8:30pm.
There are no releases for this artist yet.
