Bryan returns to London’s Royal Opera House this fall, reprising his role as the rebellious patriot Henri in a new production of Verdi’s Les Vêpres siciliennes.

The production runs from October 17 to November 11.

Following an acclaimed debut at the Met last season in Les Troyens, Bryan returns to the famed New York house as Lieutenant Pinkerton in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly from January 16 to February 11. This spring Bryan was awarded the Metropolitan Opera’s coveted Beverly Sills award, which acknowledges gifted young singers. Bryan reprises the role of Madama Butterfly‘s Lieutenant Pinkterton later this season, making his house debut at the Vienna Staatsoper from April 5 to 14.

In March Bryan travels to Zurich, making both his house and role debut as the title character of Hoffman in Jacques Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffman at Opernhaus Zürich. The performances run from March 21 to April 4.

On May 16 and 17 Bryan turns to the concert stage, guesting as soloist with the Rotterdam Philharmonic in Verdi’s monumental Requiem, conducted by the orchestra’s Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Bryan closes out his 2013-14 season at Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper, where he makes his debut in one of the most demanding roles in the tenor repertoire: the lovelorn Arnold Melchta in Rossini’s medieval saga Guillaume Tell. The performances run from June 28 to July 13.
