Tonight, I make my debut in Cilèa's Adriana Lecouvreur at the Badisches Staatstheater! I'll be singing one of my dream roles: Maurizio, which was composed for and originated by Enrico Caruso in 1902. After spending the better part of the last year researching, studying and preparing this role; including the unforgettable opportunities to work with two of Maurizio's greatest interpreters, Neil Shicoff and Plácido Domingo...I'm finally ready! In bocca al lupo a tutti!! 🎼🎭⭐️⚔️ #maurizio #adrianalecouvreur #cilea #verismo #opera #tenor #tradition #enricocaruso #jamesedgarknight #operasinger #badischesstaatstheater #premiere #karlsruhe #germany - @staatstheaterka @falk.von.traubenberg

I'm so very lucky and thankful to have my family visiting all the way from Australia to share in my debut as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur tomorrow evening at the Badisches Staatstheater • Here we are last weekend before a beautiful night out at the opera together 🥂🎶😍🎩 #family #familylove #parents #grandparents #goodgenes #somuchlove #somuchsupport #opera #dreamteam #operasinger #tenor #adrianalecouvreur #badischesstaatstheater #karlsruhe #germany

Adriana and Maurizio are ready for the final dress rehearsal • I'm a very lucky tenor to be singing my first Maurizio alongside the inestimable Katherine Broderick, who is also making her role debut. Some luxury-casting there, let me tell you; her Adriana is absolutely stunning in every way! 😍🎶🎭⭐️ #maurizio #adrianalecouvreur #cilea #verismo #opera #dressrehearsal #orchestra #rehearsal #tenor #operasinger #badischesstaatstheater #premiere #karlsruhe #germany - @staatstheaterka

I had a wonderful time today shooting portraits with Ariel Oscar Greith for the Badisches Staatstheater's new 17/18 Spielzeitheft • Here's a quick "behind-the-scenes" sneak peek of one of the moments we captured! 🎬🎭📸⭐️ #oldhollywood #blackandwhite #portrait #photography #light #shadow #operasinger #photoshoot #tenor #jamesedgarknight #photographer #arieloscargreith #opera #badischesstaatstheater #karlsruhe #germany

Tonight was the first Dress Rehearsal for Adriana Lecouvreur at the Badisches Staatstheater • It's an absolute pleasure to be singing one of my dream roles in such a beautiful production. Here I am during the Pause with our Operndirector: "Aren't you a little tall for Napoleon?" 😜⚔️🇫🇷🎶 #maurizio #adrianalecouvreur #cilea #verismo #opera #tradition #napoleon #militaryuniform #costume #operasinger #tenor #badischesstaatstheater #premiere #karlsruhe #germany - @staatstheaterka

Today is one of my favourite days in the entire rehearsal process of any opera, the Sitzprobe! It's the very first time that the singers and orchestra rehearse together and for me, it's such a thrill to see and hear the music come to life • Now the fun begins! 🎶🎻🎭👏🏻 #adrianalecouvreur #maurizio #cilea #verismo #opera #orchestra #rehearsal #sitzprobe #tenor #operasinger #badischesstaatstheater #karlsruhe #germany - @staatstheaterka

I'm not a pianist, but I should have been! What interval can you reach, @realdonaldtrump? I'm guessing your #tinyhands can barely play one octave... 😜🖐🏻🎹🐒 #piano #rachmaninoff #liszt #bighands #pianohands #cartier #wristwatch #cartierwatch #watchporn #operasinger #tenor #badischesstaatstheater #karlsruhe #germany

STAGING = COMPLETE! After almost four weeks of rehearsal; we've now staged the entire opera just in time to begin with the orchestra next week! It's always my pleasure to work with such a generous cast and supportive colleagues, including our brilliant Regisseurin Katharina Thoma • The premiere is just two weeks away! 🎶🎭⭐️🏤 #poverifiori #adrianalecouvreur #cilea #stagedirector #regie #staging #rehearsal #act4 #verismo #theater #opera #tenor #soprano #conductor #pianist #operasinger #premiere #behindthescenes #badischesstaatstheater #karlsruhe #germany - @staatstheaterka

It's #FlashbackFriday! As we get closer to the premiere of Adriana Lecouvreur, I'm remembering back to the opening of Spielzeit 16/17 at @staatstheaterka where I sang Maurizio's second aria, "l'anima ho stanca", in concert with Maestro Steven Moore • Thanks to @felix.grunschloss for sending me this great photo today! 🎶📸🎹⭐️ #badischesstaatstheater #theaterfest #concert #photography #adrianalecouvreur #maurizio #cilea #verismo #cantantelirico #tenore #aria #oldschool #whitetie #tenorlife #tenor #opera #operasinger #karlsruhe #germany #jamesedgarknight #felixgrünschloß
