Musical America’s 2020 Vocalist of the year, Swedish baritone Peter Mattei opened this season at the Opéra National de Paris, bringing his Amfortas (Parsifal) rendition to the farewell concert for former Chief Conductor Philippe Jordan. Mozart also features strongly for 2021/22, via a springtime return to Paris as the Count in Le nozze di Figaro under Gustavo Dudamel, and guest performances at Semperoper Dresden as again the Count, plus Don Giovanni. At Valencia’s Palau de les Arts he then takes the title role in Wozzeck, a role he made his debut in last season at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where he is a frequent guest. Recent concert repertoire highlights meanwhile include performing Schubert’s Winterreise at New York’s Carnegie Hall with pianist Lars David Nilsson, following their highly acclaimed recording of the cycle for BIS, and also with David Fray at Oper Frankfurt.
