Brilliant young lyric tenor Quentin Desgeorges already has a wide-ranging operatic profile, including Rodolfo (La Bohème), Alfredo (La traviata, Théâtre de Sorbiers), Lysander (Britten’s A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Dominique Pitoiset, Théâtre de l'ENSATT, Lyon), Paris (Offenbach's La Belle Hélène, Théâtre de Saint Georges-de-Reneins), First Armed Man (Die Zauberflöte, Schlosstheater Schönbrunn, Vienna), and roles in Ravel's L’enfant et les sortilèges, Hindemith’s Hin und Zurück and Isabelle Aboulker’s La Lacune (directed by Bernard Rozet and Jean-Philippe Amy, Amphithéâtre de l’Opéra de Lyon).
On the concert platform his repertoire encompasses Bach cantatas, major Romantic works (Saint-Saëns’ Requiem, Dvořák's Stabat Mater, and Puccini’s Messa di Gloria), and such modern masterpieces as Stravinsky’s Les Noces and Gilbert Amy's Missa Cum Jubilo (Auditorium de Lyon under François-Xavier Roth).
During the 2017/2018 season he made his début at the Theater an der Wien as the Amalekite in Handel’s Saul, directed by Claus Guth and conducted by Laurence Cummings.
