KKN Enterprises celebrates summer's rising temperatures with the addition of one of today's hottest young opera stars, tenor Russell Thomas, to the KKN family.

Acclaimed throughout the world as a clarion-voiced, insightful interpreter of repertory ranging from Mozart to John Adams, Russell launched the summer of 2017 with his rôle début as Loge in Wagner's Das Rheingold with the New York Philharmonic, and he will welcome autumn with his much-anticipated first portrayal of the harrowing title rôle in Verdi's Otello with the Atlanta Symphony in October, just prior to returning to The Metropolitan Opera for five outings as Rodolfo in Puccini's La bohème.

Other highlights of Russell's summer include his début at the legendary Salzburger Festspiele in the title rôle of Mozart's La clemenza di Tito and appearances with the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood as Cavaradossi in Act Two of Puccini's Tosca and the tenor soloist in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

Beat the heat with great music!
