He has subsequently been a regular Bayreuth guest and sang Lohengrin in the Neuenfels production from 2011 to 2015. This was followed by Parsifal in 2016 in a new production by Uwe Eric Laufenberg, as well as Stolzing in "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" in 2017, 2018 and 2019, directed by Barrie Kosky.In 2019 and 2021 he once again sang Lohengrin, followed by Siegmund in 2022.
