In particular, Tamino has brought considerable critical acclaim leading to a debut at the Bregenz Festival in David Pountney’s production under Patrick Summers (released on DVD by Unitel). Reinhardt made his debut at the Salzburg Whitsun Festival and at the Salzburg Festival as Tony in West Side Story alongside Cecilia Bartoli and conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. He sang his first Pollione in Norma alongside Bartoli at both the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and at Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. Current season highlights include role debuts as Belmonte in The Abduction from the Seraglio at Semperoper Dresden and as Robert, Earl of Leicester, in Maria Stuarda at Theater an der Wien and a rare performance of Donizetti’s Maria di Rohan with Washington Concert Opera under Antony Walker.
