During Oper Frankfurt's 2018/19 season Gordon Bintner, in his second year as a member of the ensemble, can be heard singing Mozart's Papageno and Count Almaviva, then three new roles: Vladislav in a new production of Smetana's Dalibor, Harlekin in Ariadne auf Naxos, Argante in last year's stunning new production of Rinaldo in the Bockenheimer Depot and the Graf in a new production of Schreker's Der ferne Klang / The Distant Sound. Last season this Canadian artist enjoyed great success in three new productions: Bogdanowitsch (Die lustige Witwe / The Merry Widow), Alexandr Petrovič Gorjančikov (Aus einem Totenhaus / From the House of the Dead) and the Graf (Capriccio), and gave a wonderful recital. He returns to the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto, where he was a member of the Opera Studio and where he recently sang Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, to sing the lead role in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin (role debut). Other engagements have included Don Giovanni in Beaune and at Montréal Opera, Papageno at Michigan Opera Theatre in Detroit, Astolfo (Lucrezia Borgia, in concert) at the Salzburg Festival, the Herald (Otello) at the Salzburg Easter Festival under Christian Thielemann, Mozart's Figaro at Manitoba Opera in Winnipeg and Lescaut (Manon) in Montréal. He also appeared in concert with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra under Edo de Waart and Montreal Symphony Orchestra under Kent Nagano.
