He concluded the last season making his debut as Admète in Gluck’s Alceste with the opera company of his hometown Lyon which he received excellent reviews for: „Admirable Julien Behr‘s soft and creamy timbre“ (bachtrack.com, 05.05.17); „Julien Behr is an Admète in Gedda’s style, magnificent in every respect: youthful and chivalrous in both appearance and vocal performance“ (forumopera.com, 02.05.17): „Befittingly Julien Behr acts more as doubtful, desperate husband than as ruler in macho mode delivering his radiant, exquisitely focussed tenor-voice with perfect French style.“ (klassiker.welt.de, 15.05.17)

For this seasons’s opening, Julien Behr gets back to one of his starring roles which he previously already performed at the Cologne Opera and at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris: Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni. With both his acting talent and his splendid arias he will conceivably take the audience in storm again, both at the Opéra national de Nancy and subsequently at the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg. Opening-night in Nancy on September 29 and in Luxembourg on October 23, 2017.
