The Phoenix declares, “Polenzani has perhaps the finest tenor voice of his generation, and he sang with aristocratic elegance and potency.” The tenor’s 2018-19 season included a return to Lyric Opera of Chicago in his signature title role of Mozart’s Idomeneo; his appearance as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La bohème at the Teatro Massimo di Palermo; and his role debuts as Vaudémont in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta at the Metropolitan Opera, and as Don José in Bizet’s Carmen at the San Francisco Opera. His 2019-20 engagements include Verdi’s Macbeth, Puccini’s La bohème, and Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier at the Metropolitan Opera; Bizet’s Carmen at Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper; Beethoven’s Fidelio and Missa Solemnis at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden; and La traviata at the Teatro Real de Madrid.
