The bravura, magnetism, and range of Rossini’s Figaro have found an ideal partner in the French baritone, Florian Sempey, who makes Il barbiere di Siviglia a focus of his dynamic international career.  With star turns already made as Figaro on the stages of Opéra de Paris, the Rossini Festival, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, the 2018-19 season includes multiple engagements with the Opéra national de Paris including a new production of Les Huguenots conducted by Michele Mariotti and directed by Andreas Kriegenburg, La cenerentola conducted by Evelino Pidò in a production by Guillaume Gallienne, and Die Zauberflöte led by Henrik Nánási in the Company’s acclaimed production by Robert Carsen.  Further performances bring the baritone to Opéra national de Bordeaux- Aquitaine for Il barbiere di Siviglia   under the baton of Marc Minkowski and to Deutsche Oper Berlin for the title role of Thomas’ Hamlet   conducted by Yves Abel.  A concert highlight of the season includes a debut at the Wiener Musikverein in performances of Berlioz’s Lélio with Philippe Jordan on the podium of the Wiener Symponiker.

The past season included no fewer than five productions of Il barbiere di Siviglia at the Chorégies d’Orange, Grand Théâtre du Luxembourg, Opéra de Marseille, Opéra national de Paris, and Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.  Florian Sempey also bowed as Malatesta in the first production of Don Pasquale ever presented at the Palais Garnier by Opéra national de Paris, Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor at the Opéra national de Bordeaux-Aquitaine, and back-to-back engagements at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as Schaunard in La bohème  conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano and as Papageno in Die Zauberflöte under the baton of Julia Jones.
