Oleksandr Pushniak

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

He is indeed an impressive appearance on stage – tall and with a powerful voice. In 2016, he sang his first Holländer in Singapore with great success. He gives an impressive Scarpia and is currently studying Wotan. At the Immling Festival 2018, he made his debut as Filippo II at ‘Don Carlo’. From December 2018, he is an ensemble member of the Nationaltheater in Weimar where he appeared as Leporello and Bartolo in the 2018/19 season and will, in the future, acquire the great roles of his profession. In 2019/20, he will sing, among others, Mercer in the world premiere of ‘The Circle’, Baron Scarpia (‘Tosca’) as well as the Drache in the acclaimed new production of ‘Lanzelot’, about which the SZ writes: “A highlight of Konwitschny's flawlessly purring production is the dragon itself. Oleksandr Pushniak sings it with booming force and the intelligence of a cunning dictator.” In the 2020/21 season, he will then make his debut at the Deutsche Oper Berlin as Holländer (‘Der fliegende Holländer’), cancelled because of Corona..
The 20211/22 season begins for him with the new production Eletric Saint, the premiere will be on September 5th, 2021. In this production he can be seen as JP Morgan. Then another new production will follow in Weimar: Caligula. Here he will be debuting the title role. The premiere is planned February 12, 2022.
