Stephen Costello returns to Russia for house role debut in La traviata at Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre

This month, Stephen Costello makes his house role debut as Alfredo in Verdi’s La traviata at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow (May 10, 12 & 14). It was after seeing him in this signature role at London’s Covent Garden that the Daily Express observed: “Costello brought real depth to the part. This young American has risen rapidly to claim a place among the world’s best tenors and recent performances show that he has the acting abilities to match his wonderfully smooth and powerful voice.”

With Pavel Klinichev on the Bolshoi podium, the tenor stars opposite the Violetta of Russian soprano Olga Peretyatko – his recent co-star in Verdi’s Rigoletto at the Met – in Francesca Zambello’s celebrated production.

This Moscow engagement follows a high-profile engagement in the Armenian capital, where Stephen headlined the opening concert of the Yerevan International Music Festival.
