Brazilian baritone Paulo Szot adds a new role to his Met repertory as Sharpless, a role that he has previously sung at Marseilles Opera. A Tony Award–winner for his performance on Broadway in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific, he made his Met debut in 2010 as Kovalyov in the company premiere of Shostakovich’s The Nose. His other roles with the company include Escamillo in Bizet’s Carmen, Lescaut in the 2012 new production premiere of Massenet’s Manon, Dr. Falke in Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, and the Captain in John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer.
