christian Zaremba


Hailed for “stealing the evening” (The Washington Post) and being “ideally cast as the assassin Sparafucile, emerging from the shadows with his seething bass-baritone,” French-American bass, Christian Zaremba, is intent on leaving a strong impression each time he performs.

Recent highlights include Il Re in Aïda with the National Symphony, Collatinus in The Rape of Lucretia, Passagallo in L’Opera Seria, and Dr. Bartolo in Le nozze di Figaro with Wolf Trap Opera, Colline in La bohème with Portland Opera and Opera Omaha, Sarastro in Die Zauberflöte and Ashby in La fanciulla del West with Minnesota Opera, and the Bass Soloist in The Little Match Girl Passion with the Glimmerglass Festival and Portland Opera.


Last season, Mr. Zaremba returned to The Metropolitan for productions of Gianni Schicchi and Tosca before greeting the New Year with a return to Austin Opera as the French General in Silent Night.  He then made debuts with The Lyric Opera of Kansas City as Nouribad in Les pêcheurs des perles and reprised his Sparafucile in Rigoletto with Opera Theatre of St. Louis. The 2019-2020 season sees him joining the production of Agrippina with the Royal Opera House, as Colline in La bohème with Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Lesbo in Agrippina with the Metropolitan Opera, Sparafucile in Rigoletto with Nashville Opera, Sarastro in Die Zauberflöte with Opéra de Montreal, and in a much-anticipated role debut with Austin Opera.
