Brandon Jovanovich's 2015/16 Season Announced

Published September 1, 2015

CHICAGO, IL: Scheduled highlights in Brandon Jovanovich's 2015/16 season include three roles debuts plus a much-anticipated house debut with L'Opéra National de Paris.

Mr. Jovanovich opens the new opera season at Opernhaus Zurich in his role debut as the Tambourmajorin Alban Berg's Wozzeck. The production is directed by Andreas Homoki and conducted by Fabio Luisi. Brandon will next travel to San Francisco Opera to make his role debut as Walter von Stolzing in Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. He says, "San Francisco Opera has served as THE place for me to cut my Wagner teeth; Froh, Sigmund, Lohengrin and now Walther. I am thrilled to be partnering with Sir David McVicar again, and working with Maestro Mark Elder for the first time!"

In the spring of 2016 Brandon will be heard on the Parisian stage for the first time in his house debut with L'Opéra National de Paris (Opera Bastille) in Stefan Herheim’s production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg under the baton of Philippe Jordan. He will next return to Munich in his second outing (originally 2013) as Des Grieux in Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, followed by performances as Don Jose in a production of Carmen that he first visited in 2011.

Brandon concludes, "Zurich has become somewhat of a second home to me and I am thrilled to be debuting the role of Hermann in Pique Dame there. I have heard that this Robert Carsen production is amazing, and I truly love tackling a character of such complexity and relish singing music laden with emotion that only Tchaikovsky can conjure. It looks to be a hugely rewarding season as an artist, and I look forward to the challenges and beauty that it will bring to all involved."
