The Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, SC is presenting an exciting double bill of Puccini's Le Villi and Umberto Giordano's Mese Mariano.

Dinyar has been invited to sing the role of Roberto in Le Villi, Puccini's first opera ever written, alongside soprano Jennifer Rowley and baritone Levi Hernandez.  The production will be directed by Stefano Vizioli and conducted by Maurizio Barbacini, and it will be Dinyar's debut with the Spoleto Festival.  It is the tale of a young man who abandons his lover for the riches of the city only to be tormented by the scorned woman’s vengeful spirit after her death


"For 17 days and nights each spring, Spoleto Festival USA fills Charleston, South Carolina’s historic theaters, churches and outdoor spaces with performances by renowned artists as well as emerging performers in opera; theater; dance; and chamber, symphonic, choral and jazz music. Now approaching its 37th season, Spoleto Festival USA is internationally recognized as America’s premier performing arts festival."

Performances are May 25, 27, 29, 31, June 2, 4 & 7
