Benjamin Bernheim sings Cassio in Verdi’s ‘Otello’ at Opernhaus Zürich

This March, Benjamin Bernheim returns to the Opernhaus Zürich stage to sing Cassio in Verdi’s Otello. The performances take place on March 8, 12, 16, 19 & 23, with a cast that also features Aleksandrs Antonenko in the title role, Maria Agresta as Desdemona, and Zeljko Lucic as Jago. Maestro Marco Armiliato leads from the pit for this production, which features a staging by Graham Vick.

Mr. Bernheim has received praise for his past portrayals of Cassio, including his star turn at the Salzburger Osterfestspiele:

“Bernheim’s performance was a source of inspiration for both his sound and a keen flexibility in his voice.”

{Bernheims Auftritt begeisterte durch seine stimmliche Durchschlagskraft und aufgeweckte Flexibilität in der Stimme.}
