Meet tenor David Pomeroy

Praised by The New York Times as "a powerful, agile tenor," David Pomeroy returns to Edmonton Opera for his role debut as Calaf! Last seen with us as Hoffman in 2013's The Tales of Hoffman, Pomeroy is delighted to be playing opera's ultimate romantic hero in Puccini's Turandot

Pomeroy's mentor, the great tenor Ermanno Mauro, has sung the role of Calaf numerous times to immense acclaim, including at Edmonton Opera in 1981. Pomeroy has been working with Mauro for the last seventeen years, and even prepared for the role of Calaf this past summer under his mentorship. 

Read our blog to learn Pomeroy's thoughts on singing the role of Calaf, especially the timeless aria 'Nessun dorma'!
