The Boston Phoenix declares, “Matthew Polenzani has perhaps the finest tenor voice of his generation.” Winner of a 2004 Richard Tucker Award and the Metropolitan Opera’s 2008 Beverly Sills Artist Award, Polenzani appeared in 2015–16 at the Paris Opera in Don Giovanni, at the Bavarian and Vienna State Operas in Werther, and at the Metropolitan Opera in Les pêcheurs de perles and Roberto Devereux. Season highlights for 2016–17 include a return to the Bavarian State Opera for Die Zauberflöte, La Favorita, and La Bohème and to the Metropolitan Opera for Don Giovanni, Idomeneo, and Der Rosenkavalier, as well as Die Zauberflöte at Lyric Opera of Chicago.
