Oleksandr Pushniak

“Sadism and perfidy are conveyed with impressive stage presence by Oleksandr Pushniak as Scarpia: powerful-voiced with brutal-heard fortissimi and dangerously quiet in the cantilenas.”

Indeed, this young Bass-Baritone  has an imposing appearance, tall and with a strong voice. As participant of the Young Artist Program at Washington National Opera from 2008 to 2011 he sang roles such as Dr. Grenvil (La Traviata), Petrucci (Lucrezia Borgia) as well as Antonio und Conte Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro). Since 2011, he has been ensemble member at Staatstheater Braunschweig, where he sang Leporello, Kurwenal, Scarpia, Amonasro and Amfortas. He made his highly acclaimed debut as Holländer in Singapur in October 2016 and he currently is studying Wotan. Up from 2018/19 season, he will be a member of the ensemble of the Nationaltheater Weimar.
