HANS SACHS

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

OPER FRANKFURT

Hans Sachs

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

On midsummer’s eve, the day before the competition, the goldsmith Veit Pogner offers his daughter Eva’s hand in marriage as the prize. The cobbler Hans Sachs, town clerk Sixtus Beckmesser and a newcomer, aristocratic Walther von Stolzing, compete for her. Each in his own way: Walther must overcome a few hurdles before being allowed to marry Eva and be accepted into the masters' guild. Between Sachs and Beckmesser it seems to be more about who’s allowed to marry the bride. Mr. Brownlee makes a milestone debut in  the title role at Oper Frankfurt under the baton of Sebastian Weigle.

WOTAN

Das Rheingold

THE DALLAS OPERA

Wotan

Das Rheingold

From the primordial depths of the Rhine to the glittering turrets of Valhalla—the world of the Teutonic gods is in chaos. The evil Alberich steals the magic gold from errant water sprites and forges it into a ring that gives the wearer unfathomable power. Now, everyone wants it—but anyone who gets it is cursed! Betrayal, cheating, illicit love, and murder…it’s all here in this first opera of Wagner’s iconic Ring Cycle. Nicholas Brownlee leads this all-star cast in a role debut as the chief god, Wotan. Music Director Emmanuel Villaume conducts this new production from The Atlanta Opera.

KASPAR

Der Freischütz

BAYERISCHE STAATSOPER

Kaspar

Der Freischütz

In a village community that holds firm to archaic customs, the young hunter Max must pass a marksmanship test so he may marry his sweetheart, Agathe. Of all times now when his shooting has been very much below par! Carl Maria von Weber and his librettist Friedrich Kind fluctuate between ghost story, fairy tale, fortune play and interplay between heaven and hell. Mr. Brownlee appears as Kaspar in Dmitri Tcherniakov's new production of Der Freischütz at the Bayerische Staatsoper.

LEPORELLO

Don Giovanni

OPER FRANKFURT

Leporello

Don Giovanni

Christof Loy places Mozart‘s opera in a baroque world, where terms like heaven, hell and God really meant something. Don Giovanni behaves like a blithe spirit who can’t be bothered with ethics or morals, whose anarchic lifestyle captivates, infects and changes the other characters forever. Mr. Brownlee appears as Leporello in Oper Frankfurt's production of Mozart's famous dramma giocoso, Don Giovanni.

FORESTER

The Cunning Little Vixen

OPER FRANKFURT

Forester

The Cunning Little Vixen

An energetic adolescent fox cub and a forester come into contact in Leoš Janáček’s impressionistic, beautiful opera. Lively and sensitive, poetic and speckled with irony it tells the eternal cycle of life and death. Director Ute M. Engelhardt brought the animal and human worlds even closer together while still managing to make the fantastic moments in the work, the characters’ longings, nightmares, dreams and fears come alive. Mr. Brownlee appears as the Forester in the Götz Friedrich Prize-winning production at Oper Frankfurt.
