“His coloratura technique,
complete with
pinprick staccatos,
is formidable”

(Tim Ashley, The Guardian)

About

Despite his young age, the crystal clear androgynous singing voice of Valer Sabadus puts him right up there in the ranks of the world’s leading countertenors. He began the 2015/16 season as Emperor Nero in Claudio Monteverdi’s ‘L’incoronazione di Poppea’ alongside Alex Penda (Poppea) at the Theater an der Wien – an outstanding debut in terms of both role and venue.

In February he is to embody the title role in the revival of the opera ‘Teseo’ at the International Handel Festival in Karlsruhe. He is also to tour with Concerto Köln and the Accademia Bizantina, take part in a duet tour and CD recording with Nuria Rial and Basel Chamber Orchestra, and appear with Les Folies Françoises and Philippe Jaroussky.

Signed exclusively to Sony Classical, he is accompanied on his latest CD ‘Caldara’, which was released in the autumn, by the Nuovo Aspetto ensemble. He was awarded an ECHO Klassik 2015 prize for his solo CD ‘Le belle immagini’, which is devoted to arias by Christoph Willibald Gluck.
