Brett Polegato’s artistic sensibility has earned him the highest praise from audiences and critics. He made his Carnegie Hall recital debut in May 2003 with pianist Warren Jones and returned the following year with the Atlanta Symphony to reprise their Grammy® Award winning performance of A Sea Symphony, and again in 2012, as soloist in Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast.
Polegato has made a name for himself in a number of dramatic roles, most notably the title roles in Don Giovanni and Eugene Onegin, which he has sung at the Canadian Opera Company, New Israeli Opera, Calgary Opera and Vancouver Opera. He is a frequent guest artist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and he appears regularly at the Lincoln Center, La Scala, the Concertgebouw, Opéra National de Paris, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Teatro Real, Roy Thomson Hall, the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.
Polegato has collaborated with conductors such as Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Andris Nelsons, Bernard Haitink, Seiji Ozawa, Jeffrey Tate, Marc Minkowski, and Martyn Brabbins. He can be heard as soloist in the Grammy® Awards’ Best Classical Recording of 2003 — Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony (Telarc) with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Robert Spano.
