Russell Thomas | Meet the Artists
Tenor. Title role in Otello.
Russell’s voice of “gorgeously burnished power” (The New York Times) has led him to the world’s top opera houses, including the WNO stage in 2018 as the title role in Don Carlo. Thomas is well on his way to being our generation’s greatest Otello, having already sung “compelling” (L.A. Times) concert performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and forthcoming stagings with the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Canadian Opera Company. He brings his telling of this titanic role to the United States opera stage for the first time in these WNO performances.
