Roberto Alagna has proved himself a Met favorite ever since his debut as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La Bohème in 1996. Born in France to Sicilian parents, Alagna fittingly built a career around many of the heroic tenor characters from both the Italian and French canons. In all, he has appeared in 16 roles (and counting) at the Met, including such favorites as Don José in Carmen, Cavaradossi in Tosca, and the title roles of Werther, Faust, and Don Carlo. He has also delighted audiences with performances in some of the rarer gems of the operatic repertoire, such as Puccini’s La Rondine in 2009 and Alfano’s Cyrano de Bergerac in 2017.
