The American baritone returns to the ensemble of the Bavarian State Opera this season as Schaunard/La bohème, Prince Yamadori/Madama Butterfly, and Melot/Tristan und Isolde. In addition to Papageno, performance highlights during his Munich tenure have also included Così fan tutte, La cenerentola, Il turco in Italia, Gianni Schicchi, Ariadne auf Naxos, and the world premiere of Miroslav Srnka’s South Pole. In North America, Plumb has appeared with the Indianapolis Symphony (The Magic Flute), the Cleveland Orchestra (Tristan und Isolde), and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (German composer Arnulf Hermann’s The Call, world premiere). The baritone’s devotion to art song has led to programs performed under the auspices of the Bavarian State Opera, the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg, and the Heidelberger Frühling Festival. Plumb was a member of the Salzburg Festival’s prestigious Young Singers Project in 2016 and a young artist at the Glimmerglass Festival (where he appeared in Tobias Picker’s An American Tragedy), the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, and the Aspen Music Festival. Plumb is a former national winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
