This month, Etienne Dupuis and Nicole Car star in Opéra de Paris’ new production of Don Giovanni, directed by Ivo van Hove. This marks Etienne’s much-anticipated role debut as Don Giovanni, while Nicole sings the role of the passionate Donna Elvira.
Performances in Paris mark the end of a very busy spring during which they were part of Eugene Onegin at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Nicole also sang the role of Micaela in Bizet’s Carmen at the Opéra de Paris. In August, they will both travel to Australia for a recital tour with pianist Jayson Gilliam that will take them to Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane.
Highlights for the coming 2019/20 season include Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin (Onegin and Tatyana) at the Opéra de Montréal, Don Carlo (Posa and Elisabetta) at the Opéra de Paris, and Thais (Athanael and Thais) at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
Don Giovanni runs from 11 June until 13 July. For more information or to buy tickets, see the Opéra de Paris website.
Toi toi toi, Etienne and Nicole!
