Bass

Ildebrando D’Arcangelo

Introduction

Hailed by critics for his stage presence and glorious basso cantabile, Ildebrando has been particularly renowned for his Mozart roles of Figaro, Count Almaviva, Leporello and Don Giovanni. In recent years he has added the great Verdi roles of Attila, Fiesco Simon Boccanegra, Banco Macbeth, Méphistophélès Faust and La Damnation de Faust to his repertoire.

Throughout his distinguished career he has appeared at the Wiener Staatsoper, Salzburg Festival, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, Opéra National de Paris, Teatro alla Scala Milan, Teatro Real Madrid and Metropolitan Opera New York with conductors including Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Myung-Whun Chung, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Bernard Haitink, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Tugan Sokhiev and Antonio Pappano.

This season he will sing his first Filippo II Don Carlos at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and returns to the Metropolitan Opera for Dulcamara Elisir d’Amore.
