James Rutherford begins his long-term contract at Oper Frankfurt this January in the role of Herr von Faninal in Strauss’s ‘Der Rosenkavalier’. This role debut marks the start of a fruitful collaboration with the house, with many more productions to follow throughout the coming seasons, including the title role in Wagner’s ‘Der Fliegende Hollaender’ and Verdi’s ‘Falstaff’, as well as his first Wotan in Wagner’s ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’.
We wish him all the best with this exciting new start!
Following her huge success in a role debut with the Glyndebourne Festival Opera at the 2014 BBC Proms under Robin Ticciati, Louise Alder will sing the role of Sophie in the performance of ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ with James Rutherford on 14 February 2016.
Oper Frankfurt’s ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ opens on 9 January 2016. Find out more on their website.
