Ildebrando D'Arcangelo made his 2011 company debut as Guglielmo in Così fan tutte, returning as Don Giovanni, Escamillo in Carmen, and Banquo in Macbeth.

Hailed by critics for his stage presence and glorious basso cantabile, he has been particularly renowned for the Mozart roles of Figaro, Count Almaviva, Leporello and Don Giovanni. In recent years he has added the great Verdi roles of Attila, Fiesco in Simon Boccanegra and Banquo in Macbeth as well as Méphistophélès in both Faust and La Damnation de Faust to his repertoire.

Throughout his distinguished career he has appeared at the Vienna State Opera, Salzburg Festival, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, Opéra National de Paris, Teatro alla Scala Milan, Teatro Real Madrid and Metropolitan Opera New York with conductors including Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Myung-Whun Chung, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Bernard Haitink, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Tugan Sokhiev and Antonio Pappano.
