American baritone Jarrett Ott, who was named one of Opera News’ twenty-five “Rising Stars,” and called, “a man who is seemingly incapable of an unmusical phrase,” also by Opera News, is enjoying an international career at the age of 32. In the 2019-20 season, Mr. Ott will return for his second season with the Staatsoper Stuttgart, debuting the roles of Conte in a new production of Le nozze di Figaro, and Valentin in Faust. He will also reprise the roles of Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Marcello in La Bohème and Dandini in La Cenerentola. In 2020, Mr. Ott will reprise the title role in David Lang’s prisoner of the state for its European tour, which includes The Barbican in London with the BBC Symphony, Copenhagen, Malmö, Bruges, Barcelona, Bochum and Rotterdam. Finally, he will return to North America to perform Jake Heggie’s one-act opera For a Look or a Touch in Seattle and San Francisco.
