The tenor Pavol Breslik’s career began in 2005 when he was named “Young Singer of the Year” in the Opernwelt magazine’s critics’ survey. From 2003 to 2006 Pavol Breslik was part of the ensemble of the Berlin State Opera Unter den Linden. Freelance since 2006, he has been a regular guest at the major European opera houses.
At the Vienna State Opera he sang Lenski, Nemorino and Alfredo, at the Bavarian State Opera he gave two important role debuts: Gennaro (“Lucrezia Borgia”) at Edita Gruberova’s side and Edgardo (“Lucia di Lammermoor”) with Diana Damrau. At Covent Garden he appeared as Lenski in “Onegin” as well as Ferrando and Tamino, and recently returned as Don Ottavio. From 2012 to 2018 he was a member of the Zurich Opera House ensemble, where he sang Stewa, Don Ottavio, Nadir, Peter Quint and most recently Leicester among others.
During the current season Breslik made his role debut as Hans in “Die Verkaufte Braut” in Munich and Dresden, and gave guest performances at the Met as Don Ottavio. At the end of the season he will sing Narraboth in the new “Salome” at the Bavarian State Opera.
Plans in the near future are: “Rusalka” (Prince) in concert at the Philharmonie Berlin, Fenton in the new production of “Lustige Weiber” at the Lindenoper, Edwin in the new “Csardas Princess” in Zurich and a major concert tour with “Christus am Ölberg” with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra.
