Dimitri Pittas makes a powerful impression in his HGO debut as Edgardo. His rich tenor, charged with electricity and dynamism, projects the fervor of his love for Lucia and bitterness at Enrico's cruelties. Houston Chronicle - Everett Evans
Making his debut, Dimitri Pittas, in his short scene at the beginning of the fourth act, became the audience favorite, thanks to his bright timbre and cultured, piano singing. Die Presse (Vienna) - Wilhelm Sinkovicz
Dimitri Pittas makes a bold and remarkably plausible bid to take his place among the great tenors who have assayed Nemorino. (Santa Fe Opera) Finanical Times - George Loomis
Dimitri Pittas has performed on leading opera stages throughout North America and Europe, including debuts with the Bavarian State Opera, the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera at Covent Garden, and the Canadian Opera Company. He is a graduate of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program and has been heard on the Met stage as Rodolfo in La bohème, Macduff in Macbeth, Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore, and Tamino in Die Zauberflöte. For his debut with Canadian Opera Company as the Duke in Rigoletto, the Toronto Star said, . . . “Dimitri Pittas comes off the best as the Duke of Mantua, with a flexible voice that can express real love and shallow desire with equal conviction.”
Mr. Pittas begins the current season singing Verdi’s Requiem for the BBC Proms with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under Marin Alsop, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Oslo Philharmonic, and Rachmaninoff’s The Bells with the Orchestre Metropolitain de Montreal, under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Operatic engagements include Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore with Houston Grand Opera, a return to the Bolshoi Opera in the title role of Don Carlo, his role debut as Lt. Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Washington National Opera, and performances of Alfred in Die Fledermaus with Santa Fe Opera.
