Stanislas de Barbeyrac

Tenor

One of the most exciting and in-demand artists today, French tenor Stanislas de Barbeyrac came to international attention in 2014 when he sang his first Tamino Die Zauberflöte at Aix-en-Provence Festival. A complex and compelling musician and actor, he has been capturing wide acclaim on the world’s most important stages such as Opéra National de Paris, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Wiener Staatsoper, Metropolitan Opera, Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, Dutch National Opera, Teatro Real Madrid, Grand Théâtre de Genève, San Francisco Opera, and at the Aix-en-Provence and Salzburg Festivals.

In the 2023/24 season, de Barbeyrac makes a series of highly exciting role debuts: as Jason in Cherubini Médée in a new production at Teatro alla Scala in Milan (also his company debut) and at the Staatsoper Berlin; as Siegmund Die Walküre on a tour of Europe with the Rotterdam Philharmonic and Yannick Nézet-Séguin and with the Orchestra del Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and Omer Meir Wellber; and as Idomeneo at Grand Théâtre de Genève in a new production by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Further highlights include his return to the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence; Don José Carmen at Opéra de Rouen Normandie, and in concert at the Théâtre de Champs-É lysées; Verdi Requiem with the Philharm onia Orchestra under the baton of Santtu-Matias Rouvali; Pelléas Pelléas et Mélisande at the George Enescu Festival; and the title role of La Damnation de Faust with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Cristian Măcelaru.

Last season he sang his first Wagner role: Erik Der fliegende Holländer at Staatsoper Berlin where he was also seen as Don José Carmen, a role which was a vehicle for his return to Dutch National Opera. Other appearances include Piquillo in a new production of Offenbach’s La Périchole at the Theatre de Champs-Elysées conducted by Marc Minkowski and Max Der Freischütz at Semperoper Dresden. On the concert platform, de Barbeyrac joined the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra for Beethoven Missa Solemnis under the baton of Klaus Mäkelä; the Insula Orchestra for a series of celebratory anniversary concerts and the Grand Théâtre de Genève for a New Year’s Eve concert conducted by Marc Leroy Calatayud.

His most notable roles include the title role of Pelléas Pelléas et Mélisande (Gran Teatre del Liceu, Theatre de Champs-Elysées, Opéra National de Bordeaux, in Tokyo and in concert in Cologne and Compiegne, France); Florestan Fidelio with Insula Orchestra under the baton of Laurence Equilbey; Tamino Die Zauberflöte, a reference role in his career (Aix-en-Provence Festival, Dutch National Opera, Chorégies d’Orange; Opéra de Paris; Opernhaus Zürich, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Teatro Real and in Budapest); Don Ottavio Don Giovanni (Wiener Staatsoper, Metropolitan Opera, Bayerische Staatsoper, San Francisco Opera and Opéra National de Paris), Tito La Clemenza di Tito (Opéra National de Paris), Arbace Idomeneo (Royal Opera House); Lensky Eugene Onegin (Théâtre du Châtelet) and Chevalier de la Force in Poulenc Dialogues des Carmélites, (Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Bayerische Staatsoper, Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, Teatro Comunale in Bologna, and Dutch National Opera).

Recent concert highlights saw him perform at Concert de Paris for Bastille Day at the Eiffel Tower; at the Salzburg Festival in Mozart’s Davide Penitente and Haydn Die Schöpfung; Mozart Requiem at the Verbier Festival; several recital appearances in Paris and Barcelona; concerts with Gaëlle Arquez at the Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise and Licinius La Vestale at Palazzetto Bru Zane.

Stanislas de Barbeyrac studied at the Conservatoire de Bordeaux with Lionel Sarazzin, who remains his vocal mentor today. He has been a prize-win ner at several prestigious competitions, including the Prix du Cercle Carpeaux, Prix Lyriques de l’AROP, and Queen Elisabeth International Competition in Brussels. De Barb ey rac joined the Atelier Lyrique of the Opéra de Paris in 2008 and subsequently began his operatic career at theatres in Nice, Tours, Toulon, Strasbourg, Metz, Marseille and Avignon, as well as at the Opéra de Paris, where he has appeared in many supporting roles, such as Walther von der Vogelweide in Tannhäuser, Evandre in Alceste and Narraboth Salome.

Press

There were, however, astonishing central performances from Stanislas de Barbeyrac as Max and Johanni van Oostrum as Agathe – truly outstanding singers with major careers ahead of them on this showing. De Barbeyrac’s vocal weight, easy top notes and sweetness of tone are well nigh ideal in this music, and he’s a fine actor, conveying Max’s emotional and moral agony with wonderful subtlety.

The Guardian

Finally a tenor Pelléas, and what! Stanislas de Barbeyrac certainly spreads splendours (the full youth of the treble, the naturally darker base of the medium) but the vocal eroticism of this restless prince, the insolent support of the dynamic, are resolved into poignant intelligence of the verb, in dramatic reverie.

Diapason

For his role as Don José, Stanislas de Barbeyrac gains our full support, and it is marvelous to see how the former Mozartian tenor has transformed into a real lyric tenor, with a power and a vocal radiance that he did not know.

Opera Online

The mere presence of this brilliant tenor deserves the trip as his vocal mastery is total.

He is an exceptional tenor, Stanislas de Barbeyrac
