Florian Sempey (W-Na)
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 on the stages of Opéra de Paris, Chorégies d’Orange, Rossini Festival, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, and Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, the 2019-20 season includes performances of Il barbiere di Siviglia at the Opéra national de Paris conducted by Carlo Montanaro in a production by Damiano Michieletto and at the New National Theatre Tokyo under the baton of Antonello Allemandi, Raimbaud in Le comte Ory – opposite Cecilia Bartoli – with Opéra de Monte-Carlo under the baton of Gianluca Capuano produced by Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier, and Conte Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro at the Opéra national de Bordeaux conducted by Marc Minkowski.
Last season multiple engagements with the Opéra national de Paris included a new production by Andreas Kriegenburg of Les Huguenots conducted by Michele Mariotti, 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 brought the baritone to Opéra national de Bordeaux 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 included a debut at the Wiener Musikverein in performances of Berlioz’s Lélio with Philippe Jordan on the podium of the Wiener Symponiker.
