American tenor Brian Jagde, the featured singer in our 2013 Rising Stars of Opera performance, is emerging as one of the top lyric tenors to watch. In the San Francisco Classical Voice’s words: “Jagde supplied what so many other tenors on today’s main stage lack: soul ... Jagde made me believe in his singing.” He recently made his debuts at the Metropolitan Opera (as Count Elemer in Arabella) and at Opéra de Limoges (as Don José in Carmen). The former Adler Fellow returns to the San Francisco Opera in the summer of 2014 as Cavardossi in Tosca.
