Other stage performances in Wiesbaden include Voltaire/Pangloss/Martin in Bernstein's "Candide", Countess de la Roche's Servant "Die Soldaten" and as narrator and presenter for various concerts. During 2016/17, he performed Benoît and Alcindoro in "La Bohème", as well as Antonio in "Le nozze di Figaro".
