“His coloratura technique,
complete with
pinprick staccatos,
is formidable”

(Tim Ashley, The Guardian)

About

With his crystal clear and androgynous voice, Valer Sabadus is well established within the ranks of the world's top countertenors. For the two-time winner of the ECHO Classic Award, the spotlight in the 2017/18 opera season will be on Händel, Cavalli and Monteverdi: in the role of Giuliano, he celebrates his debut at the Dutch National Opera in October with the premiere of Cavalli's opera, “Eliogabalo”  – a co-production with the Opéra National de Paris where he assumed this same role in last year's successful production under the baton of conductor, Leonardo Garcia Alarcon.
As of January 2018, Valer Sabadus can be heard at the Opéra National de Paris as the Angel in Händel's “Jephta”. This is followed by performances of the repeat production of Cavalli''s “Il Giasone” at the Opéra Royal de Versailles in the title role – a role he sung previously in the successful production at the Grand Théâtre de Génève , and will sing there again this season. The countertenor will wrap up the opera season in June with his debut at the Opernhaus Zürich in the role of Nerone in Monteverdi's  “L’Incoronazione di Poppea”.
