Joshua is thrilled to be able to share the details of his 2017/18 season. It includes three house debuts, at Oper Köln, Opera Colorado and Israeli Opera and three role debuts, as Bottom in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Faraone in Rossini’s virtuosic opera seria Mosè in Egitto and Kaspar in Weber’s Der Freischütz. He will be returning to English National Opera, as Bottom in Robert Carsen’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, collaborating again with Gerald Barry and Thomas Adès for performances of Barry’s rarely heard The Conquest of Ireland with the Britten Sinfonia and returning to the role of Colline, in Puccini’s La Bohème.

Le Grand Macabre with the Berlin Philharmonic
Joshua’s debut with the Berlin Philharmonic, in Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre, is now up on the orchestra’s Digital Concert Hall and you can watch it here. The performances were conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, with a prescient staging by Peter Sellars.
You can find details of other audio and visual recordings on Joshua’s media page, including a liver performance of Gerald Barry’s Alice’s Adventure’s Underground live from the Barbican, and upcoming releases with LSO Live, and Sir Simon Rattle.
Figaro at Garsington Opera
Joshua is looking forward to returning to Garsington Opera in the title role of Le Nozze di Figaro. He first performed the role for Opera Australia in 2012, and was praised for his ‘splendid’, ‘engaging’ and ‘resonant’ portrayal of Figaro. You can read Josh’s thoughts on returning to Garsington Opera in their monthy newsletter.
Le Nozze di Figaro opens at Garsington on June 2, and runs until July 16. It also travels to Théâtre des Champs-Elysées on June 27.
