In the spring of 2018 Gelu Dobrea performed the role of Ramfis in the impressive production of Aida set against the backdrop of the Pyramids of Giza.  In the summer he was heard for the first time in Germany, as Grande Inquisitore  (Don Carlos) at the Opera Festival Immling. Other engagements include Sarastro (Magic Flute) at Cairo Opera House. As a winner of national singing competitions, he regularly receives invitations to the major opera houses in Romania.

The young Romanian bass was born in Arad and completed his vocal studies at the Music Academy of Timisoara. As part of his subsequent engagement at the National Opera Timisoara he was able to debut in many varied bass roles, most recently as Zaccharia (Nabucco). The large voice with its warm quality and dark timbre strongly suggests a major international career will develop for Gelu Dobrea.

Im Frühjahr 2018 gastierte Gelu Dobrea als Ramfis in der eindrucksvollen Inszenierung von Aida vor der Kulisse der Pyramiden von Gizeh, im Sommer war er zum ersten Mal in Deutschland zu hören, als Grande Inquisitore/Don Carlos bei den Operfestspielen Immling. Ein weiteres Engagement führte ihn als Sarastro in Mozarts Zauberflöte an das Opernhaus Cairo.

Der junge rumänische Bass wurde in Arad geboren und absolvierte ein Gesangsstudium an der Musikhochschule von Timisoara. Im Rahmen seines unmittelbar anschließenden Engagements an der National Opera Timisoara konnte er in diversen Basspartien debütieren, zuletzt als Zacharias in Nabucco. Die große Stimme mit warm-dunklem Klangcharakter prädestiniert Gelu Dobrea für eine internationale Bühnenlaufbahn.

Als Gewinner nationaler Gesangswettbewerbe erhält er fortwährend Einladungen an die großen Opernhäuser Rumäniens.
