After Eric Jurenas made his European debut singing Natascha in Eötvös’ Tri Sestry (available on CD - OehmsClassics) at the Vienna State Opera in 2016, he quickly became one of the most sought-after countertenors of his generation. Natascha was also his first role at Oper Frankfurt (2018), where he returned for Arsamene in Xerxes and now takes on Prince Go-Go in this new production of Ligeti's Le Grand Macabre. Engagements this season include performing in Adam's El Niño and again in Put's The Hours at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where he made his debut in 2022, in Dean's Hamlet. Other engagements have included Vivaldi's Bajazet at Covent Garden in London, La Speranza in Monterverdi's L‘Orfeo at the Staatsoper in Dresden and taking part in the world premiere of Neuwirth's Orlando at the Vienna State Opera. He sang Narciso in Barrie Kosky's production of Handel's Agrippina at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, the Staatsoper in Munich and Komische Oper Berlin, where he also sang the title role in Peter Pan, Alexander (Poro) and the Herald in Medea by Reimann, the world premiere of whose Sinnig zwischen beyden Welten was performed in the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin by Eric Jurenas with Daniel Barenboim at the piano. He sang Rinaldo at the Theater an der Wien, in Moscow and the Opéra Royal de Versailles, where he also gave a very successful recital. Other concerts have taken him to places including the Festwochen for Early Music in Innsbruck, the Baldwin Bach Festival and he sang David in Saul (available on CD) at the Handel Festival in Göttingen.
