This coming month sees Dmytro Popov in Prague for a double-header in Iolanta and La traviata, two roles that have earned the Ukrainian tenor considerable acclaim.
On March 10 and 16, Dmytro reprises the role of Vaudémont in Tchaikovsky’s one-act opera Iolanta (shown here on a double-bill with Stravinsky’s The Nightingale). Having recorded the role for Oehms Classics to acclaim in 2015, Dmytro now stars opposite Dana Buresova in the title role with Roman Janál as Robert and Zdenek Plech as King René. Zbynek Müller conducts the production, staged by Dominik Benes.
Dmytro then returns to the city of a thousand spires on April 5 and 8 for Verdi’s perennially popular La traviata, starring opposite Julia Novikova in the title role and with Vladimír Chmelo as Giorgio Germont. Jaroslav Kyzlink conducts the performances, with staging by Jana Kalisova.
