Joshua starts off his season this Fall immersed in Puccini.  He will be performing Marcello in “La Bohème” with Opera Lyra Ottawa and in a new production with the Houston Grand Opera directed by John Caird and conducted by Evan Rogister.  This Winter, he is very pleased to be making his return to The Metropolitan Opera in their new Sir David McVicar production of Donizetti’s “Maria Stuarda” starring Joyce DiDonato.  Later in the season he will be appearing as Papageno in Vancouver Opera’s “The Magic Flute.”  Joshua will end his season with a debut at the Glyndebourne Festival as Count Almaviva in Michael Grandage’s 2012 production of “Le nozze di Figaro.”

Furthering his commitment to concert work, Joshua performs Brahms’ “Ein deutsches Requiem” with Hans Graf and the Houston Symphony and with Jean-Marie Zeitouni and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.  In a recital program presented by Early Music Vancouver, Joshua will be joined by Michael Jarvis on a magnificent, recently restored 19th-century grand piano, for a programme that includes works by Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann & Mendelssohn.
