At the Metropolitan Opera, he has appeared in more than 500 performances of 30 roles, including title roles in Billy Budd, Pelléas et Mélisande, Don Giovanni, and Il barbiere di Siviglia. This season at the Met, he appears as Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, Peter in Hansel and Gretel, Orest in Elektra, and Capulet in Roméo et Juliette.
