The Metropolitan Opera mourns the untimely death of bass-baritone John Del Carlo, a gifted artist and treasured colleague who sang more than 300 Met performances of 20 roles over the course of his 23-year career with the company. John made his debut in 1993 as Kothner in Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg and sang what would be his final Met performances, the roles of Benoit and Alcindoro in Puccini's La Boheme, during the 2015-16 season. He was perhaps bestknown to opera lovers for his portrayals of comic characters like Dr. Bartolo in Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro; the title character in Donizetti's Don Pasquale; and Frank in Strauss's Die Fledermaus. We offer our sincerest condolences to his daughter Jeanine, and his friends and admirers around the world. Peter Gelb, General Manager James Levine, Music Director Emeritus
