Dimitri Pittas | Meet the Artists
Tenor. Pinkerton in Madame Butterfly.
A native of Queens, New York, Dimitri is a graduate of The Metropolitan Opera‘s Lindemann Young Artist Development program.
This production marks Dimitri’s WNO debut as well as his debut in the role of Pinkerton.
Some of Dimitri’s most notable roles include Rodolfo in La bohème, Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet, Macduff in Macbeth, the title role in Don Carlo, and Nemorino in The Elixir of Love.
Fun fact! The life of an opera singer is unlike any other. It’s unpredictable and nonstop and exciting—and this story from Dimitri encapsulates it perfectly. This year, while preparing to travel to Virginia from South Carolina for Passover, Dimitri received a call asking him to replace an ill tenor in an Opera Philadelphia production of The Elixir of Love. Always ready for the stage, Dimitri was forced to forgo his family trip and travel to Philadelphia instead. With only days to rehearse before the premiere, Dimitri saved the day.
The New York Times proclaims,”Mr. Pittas has a future and, evidently, already a present.”
Buy tickets for Madame Butterfly and prepare for Dimitri’s powerful voice. (Note that the role of Pinkerton will be performed by Brian Jagde on certain dates.)
