"Heroic and confident tone."
The brilliant young Russian tenor, Dmitry Korchak, has taken the operatic world by storm after winning two prizes with Plácido Domingo's Operalia Competition in Los Angeles in 2004. Audiences on two continents have since thrilled to his elegant tenor voice.
Recent career highlights have included Die Zauberflöte in Macerata, Werther in Savona, Dom Sébastien with the Opera Orchestra of New York, La Gazza Ladra at the Rossini Opera Festival and L'elisir d'amore at the Paris Opéra. Upcoming engagements feature his Covent Garden debut in L'elisir d'amore, La Sonnambula in New York, Don Giovanni in Israel conducted by Zubin Mehta, and a return to the Rossini Opera Festival for L'Equivoco Stravagante.
In early 2008, MSM will release Dmitry Korchak's debut recital recording: Bel canto: 15 Years of Romantic Opera. The tenor will be joined by the Kammerensemble Classic der Deutschen Oper Berlin in an impressive programme ranging from the rare to the well-known. Seldom recorded works by Boieldieu, Auber and Marschner will be coupled with the more familiar music of Donizetti, Bellini, and Rossini. All selections have been chosen to highlight the entrancing voice and remarkable technique of this exciting young artist.
