Lawrence Zazzo
The American countertenor Lawrence Zazzo is back at Oper Frankfurt, where he sang Ruggiero in Orlando furioso last season, for the world premiere of Riehm's Sirens. A baroque specialist, recent engagements have included the title role in Handel's Amadigi di Gaula with the Basle Chamber Orchestra conducted by Ottavio Dantone in Versailles and Arsamene in Handel's Serse under Riccardo Minasi in Beaune. Lawrence Zazzo studied English literature at Yale before enrolling at King’s College Cambridge. He made his operatic debut at the Royal College of Music in London singing Oberon in Britten's A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This was followed by the title role in Handel's Arminio at the London Handel Festival. Engagements since then have included appearances in Glyndebourne, Edinburgh, Montpellier, Vienna, Innsbruck, Karlsruhe, Munich, Hamburg, Oslo, Rome, Zurich, Paris, Brussels, New York, London and Berlin. His repertoire includes the title roles in Giulio Cesare in Egitto and Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice as well as many in 20th century music, such as Mascha (Eötvös’ Three Sisters) and Trinculo (The Tempest). He sang Ottone in Agrippina at Oper Frankfurt in 2006.
