We wish Peter Rose toi toi toi as he makes his role debut as the four villains, Lindorf, Coppelius, Dappertutto and Dr Miracle in a new production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann at the Dresden Semperoper this week.
The season also includes returns to Amsterdam and Munich as Osmin in Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Amsterdam from 13 – 26 January, Munich from 24 – 31 March), to Vienna for his definitive Baron Ochs in Der Rosenkavalier, a return to the USA for Pelléas et Mélisande with the Cleveland Orchestra (2 – 4 May, with Hanno Müller-Brachmann) and Rocco in Fidelio for the Dresden Festival
Hoffmann runs from 4 December 2017 – 7 January 2017. For more information and tickets, see the Dresden Semperoper website here.
