Michael Fabiano debuts ‘Werther’ at Opera Australia

Michael Fabiano makes his greatly anticipated debut in the title role of Massenet’s Werther with Opera Australia this month. This is Mr. Fabiano’s third appearance at the Sydney Opera House, previously performing the role of Edgardo from Lucia di Lammermoor, and making his house debut in title role of Faust in 2015.

From February 22 through March 11, Fabiano shares the stage with a wonderful roster of singers including Elena Maimova as Charlotte, Stacey Alleaume as Sophie, Luke Gabbedy as Albert, Richard Anderson as Le Bailli, Nicholas Jones as Schmidt, Andrew Moran as Johann, Hoatian Qi as Brühlemann, and Anna Dowsley as Käthchen. Carlo Montanaro will conduct the Opera Australia Orchestra and Children’s Chorus. More information and tickets are available via Opera Australia.

Critical acclaim from Luca di Lammermoor at Opera Australia in 2018:

“As Edgardo, tenor Michael Fabiano had the passion and vocal power necessary to make the opera’s heightened romance plausible, and also avoid being utterly overshadowed by his leading lady. Far from it: instead of stumbling to its conclusion after the heights of the mad scene, this Lucia continued to soar thanks to Fabiano’s mighty duet with Giorgio Caoduro’s Enrico, and his despairing aria that reveals an Edgardo also mad with grief.” (Bachtrack)

As with most modern leads, Fabiano acts his role to a very high standard such that the audience emphasises with him as his suffering takes its toll on him." J-Wire "Fabiano sang Werther with lyric chestnut sound of polished focus amid the domestic serenity of the early acts, building to powerful declamation of soaring intensity in the {…}
