Dmytro Popov

Ukrainian tenor Dmytro Popov began his career as a soloist with Kiev National Theatre where he made his professional debut as Lensky »Eugene Onegin«. He came to international attention in 2013 when he performed the role of Rodolfo »La Bohème« at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. From here, Dmytro’s global career took off and he has since performed multiple roles across the world at significant opera houses with highlights including »La Bohème« at the Metropolitan Opera and Bayerische Staatsoper, Alfredo »La traviata« at Wiener Staatsoper and Mariinsky Theatre, Nicias »Thaïs« at Teatro Regio di Torino, Pinkerton »Madama Butterfly«, Cavaradossi »Tosca« and Rodolfo »Luisa Miller« with Deutsche Oper Berlin, Vaudémont »Iolanta« with Teatro Real Madrid, Macduff »Macbeth« with Opéra National de Lyon, Andrej Mazeppa with Opéra de Monte-Carlo and Riccardo »Un ballo in maschera« at Théâtre du Capitôle de Toulouse. As well as being an experienced character performer, Popov is established on the concert platform having performed works including Rachmaninov’s »The Bells« with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome conducted by Antonio Pappano, with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, with the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne, and most recently with Orchestre de Paris under Gianandrea Noseda. Additional concert highlights include Verdi’s Requiem at the BBC Proms, Tanglewood Music Festival, with London Philharmonic Orchestra, and in a staged production with Staatsoper Hamburg, »A Life for the Tsar« at the Festival Radio France, Montpellier and Don José »Carmen« in concert at the Verbier Festival. A highly successful 2018/19 season saw performances of »La traviata« at Teatro Regio Torino, Dmitri Tcherniakov’s production of »Iolanta« with Opéra de Paris, Tosca at the Semperoper Dresden, The Prince in »Rusalka« at Oper Köln, and »Un ballo in maschera« at the Deutsche Oper and Bolshoi Theatre. In concert, Dmytro performed across Europe on a tour of Verdi’s Requiem under Teodor Currentzis, Dvorak’s »Stabat Mater« with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Andris Nelsons, and at the Wigmore Hall with pianist Iain Burnisde in a recital of Russian Song. Engagements this season and beyond include returns to Metropolitan Opera for »La traviata«, Opéra de Paris for »Madama Butterfly, Oper Köln and Opernhaus Zurich for Carmen, and Staatsoper Hamburg for staged performances of Verdi’s Requiem. Later, Dmytro continues to work with great conductors such as Antonio Pappano, Sir Mark Elder, Andris Nelsons, Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Giampaolo Bisanti, Valery Gergiev, Carlo Rizzi, Thomas Søndergård, Vladimir Jurowski, and Teodor Currentzis, and with many notable directors including Dmitri Tcherniakov, Paul Curran, Peter Sellars, Calixto Beito, Robert Wilson, and many more. Dmytro became the youngest ever opera artist to be granted the title of »Honoured Artist of Ukraine« (2003) which recognises outstanding contribution to performing arts.
