Alexander Tsymbalyuk


The Ukrainian artist, one of today’s leading basses internationally, has made highly successful company debuts in recent seasons at the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Opéra National de Paris, the Royal Danish Opera, Covent Garden, the Bolshoi, and the major houses of Munich, Berlin, Valencia, Barcelona, and Florence. Highlights of the current season include Tsymbalyuk’s portrayals of Timur/ Turandot (Met), Fasolt/Das Rheingold (Munich Opera Festival), and Prince Gremin/Eugene Onegin (Hamburg State Opera, where he was an ensemble member for almost a decade). Among his previous achievements are roles of Verdi (Ferrando/ Il trovatore at Covent Garden), Donizetti (Raimondo/Lucia di Lammermoor at the Bavarian State Opera), and Mozart (the Commendatore/Don Giovanni at the Opéra National de Paris). Tsymbalyuk holds the distinction of being the youngest bass ever to sing the title role/Boris Godunov on a major international stage (the Bavarian State Opera, a Calixto Bieito production conducted by Kent Nagano and released on DVD). In concert he has appeared at Florence’s Maggio Musicale, singing Verdi’s Don Carlos and the requiems of Mozart and Verdi. Tsymbalyuk has given a solo recital at St. John’s Smith Square in London and took part in the 20th-anniversary concert charity event “Festliche Gala der Deutschen AIDS Stiftung” at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
