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. In October 2016, he made his highly acclaimed debut as Holländer in Singapur and in Summer 2018, he was guest at the Immling Festival with his first Filippo II in ‚Don Carlo‘. Up from December 2018, he will be a member of the ensemble of the Nationaltheater Weimar and will sing roles like Leporello.
