Benjamin Bernheim returns to the Staatsoper Berlin in two of his highly praised roles, first as Rodolfo in La Boheme, and then as Alfredo Germont in La Traviata. Both roles are staples of his repertoire; he began his season with La Traviata at the Opéra de Paris, and will also perform the role at the Wiener Staatsoper this season, and he sings Rodolfo this season in the Klaus Guth production at the Opéra de Paris and at the Bayerische Staatsoper. In La Boheme, Rodolfo’s Mimi is sung by Eleonora Buratto and is under the direction of Alexander Soddy. In La Traviata, Alfredo’s Violetta is sung by Zuzana Markova and is under the direction of Thomas Guggeis.
