Watch Igor Durlovski in Jommelli rarity Il Vologeso

Igor Durlovski
Macedonian bass-barihunk Igor Durlovski performed Ancieto in Niccolò Jommelli's rarely produced opera Il Vologeso, Queen of Armenia last year at Staatstheater Stuttgart. The performance marked the 300th anniversary of the Italian composer. The plot of the 1766 opera concerns King Vologeso, who is deposed by Lucio Vero  and restored by another Roman, Flavio.

Niccolò Jommelli composed religious works and operas. In 1753, at the height of his fame, he was choirmaster at the ducal court of Württemberg in Ludwigsburg and commissioned to compose two operas a year.

Durlovski graduated from the Faculty of Music at Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje and  made his professional debut in 1999. From 2000 to 2002, he sang with the Macedonian Opera in numerous productions, including Lucia di Lammermoor, Il trovatore, Don Giovanni, Turandot, Il barbiere di Siviglia, La forza del destino, Rigoletto, and Aida. He made his international debut at the Wiener Kammeroper in 2001 as Nonacourt in Nino Rota's Il cappello di paglia di Firenze. Since the 2009-10 he has appeared regularly at the Staatstheater Kassel.
