MINSK, 14 July (BelTA) - Belarusian tenor Pavel Valuzhin will make his debut on the world's largest opera stage - the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the artist’s concert manager Yulia Antonenko informed.

The Metropolitan Opera announced the new hire in early July on its website. “The tenor has been invited to debut in the 2020-2021 season,” Yulia Antonenko said.

“I am immensely happy at the opportunity to perform in the world's largest opera house. It's been my dream for years. I worked hard perfecting my skills to achieve success. With years of work at various venues, internships with the most famous teachers in Europe and the world, I have accumulated sufficient experience,” Pavel Valuzhin noted. “In January I will be performing in New York as Rodolfo in the amazing production of Franco Zeffirelli. In the light of the pandemic I remain in Minsk with my family today. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones soaking in emotions and impressions for new achievements.”

Belarusian tenor Pavel Valuzhin was born in the town of Radoshkovichi, Minsk Oblast. He graduated from the Oginski Music College in Molodechno, and  Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory. After graduating from the conservatory Pavel was enrolled in the Young Artists Program of the Bolshoi Theater.  In the 2016-2018 season he was the soloist of the Bolshoi opera company where he had outstanding mentors and vocal teachers. Today the singer tours Europe and Russia, performs in a concert in La Scala, has engagements with the world’s best opera houses.
