Nicole Car and Michael Fabiano will join him as Elisabetta / Don Carlo from 14 November onward.

The part of Rodrigo is no stranger to Etienne, having performed it at the Deutsche Oper Berlin in 2018, 2017 and for his role debut in 2015. Other Verdi roles embodied on stage in recent years are Giorgo Germont in La traviata and Renato in Un ballo in maschera.
