He travels to Washington National Opera to make his debut in the role of Captain Ahab in Moby-Dick and later returns to England's Grange Park Opera to appear in the title role Peter Grimes in a new production, and also to revive the role of Hermann in Pique Dame, a role he inaugurated with great acclaim last season. Future season appearances include return engagements at The Metropolitan Opera and at London's Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Recent successes include Dick Johnson in La Fanciulla del West at Opéra Royal de Wallonie in Liege and Cavaradossi in Tosca at Deutsche Oper Berlin, a role he previously sang at the New National Theatre in Tokyo, Greek National Opera and in his debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. He opened the Metropolitan Opera's Aida to great public and critical acclaim, and travelled to the UK to make his debut as Hermann at Grange Park Opera.
