Raimonds Bramanis will sing the role of Duke at the Estonian National Opera’s “Rigoletto” on the 18th of December. He has sung at the Estonian National opera before – the role of Alfredo in the opera “La Traviata“.

Raimonds Bramanis made his debut at the Latvian National Opera as Papageno in Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte” (2008). Before turning to the tenor repertoire, he sung baritone roles, such as Belcore (Donizetti’s “L’elisir d’amore”) and Masetto (Mozart’s “Don Giovanni”). During the season 2009/2010 Raimonds Bramanis made a transition to tenor repertoire with the role of Ismaele Verdi’s (“Nabucco”) and Macduff (“Macbeth”). His repertoire includes also Edmondo (Puccini’s “Manon Lescaut”), Lensky (Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin”), Alfred (Strauss’ “Die Fledermaus”), Faust (Gounod’s “Faust”), the Duke (Verdi’s “Rigoletto”), Prince (Prokofiev’s “The Love for Three Oranges”), etc.  In August 2010, he made his debut as Alfredo in “La traviata”. Besides Latvian National Opera he has sung in Theater Magdeburg (Germany) and Smetana Hall (Czech Republic). In 2012, Raimonds Bramanis took part in the concert performance of Verdi’s “Otello” with the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Karel Mark Chichon.
