In 2002 he made his debute as Tebaldo in Vincenzo Bellini’s opera I Capuleti e i Montecchi at Bari Teatro, conducted by Arnold Bosman. A year later, he performed Rodolfo in Puccini's opera La bohéme. Then his career brought him to the Czech Republic where he made his Czech debute as the Duke of Mantua in Verdi’s Rigoletto, appearing as the guest of the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre opera company in 2003.  He decided to stay in Ostrava, he has later become a soloist of the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre opera company.  His most significant roles are Roméo (Gounod's Roméo et Juliette), Alfredo Germont (Verdi's La traviata), Don José (Bizet's Carmen), Werther (Massenet's Werther), Faust (Gounod's Faust), Nemorino (Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore), Cyrano (Alfano’s Cyrano de Bergerac), Renato des Grieux (Puccini's Manon Lescaut), Fenton (Verdi’s Falstaff), Ismaele (Verdi's Nabucco), Dalibor (Smetana's Dalibor), the Prince (Dvořák’s Rusalka), Števa Buryja (Janáček's Jenůfa), Vanya Kudryash (Janáček's Katya Kabanová), Ferrando (Mozart's Così fan tutte), Don Ottavio (Mozart's Don Giovanni), the Tenor/Bacchus (Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos), the Cavalier (Hindemith’s Cardillac), Manolios (The Greek Passion by Martinů), Ctirad (Janáček's Šárka), Janek (Janáček's The Makropulos Affair), and others.
 
He has currently been performing various roles in Donizetti's trilogy inspired by the lives of the English queens, for example: Lord Riccardo Percy (Anna Bolena) and Roberto, Earl of Leicester (Maria Stuarda) - he guest-starred in Banská Bystrica with this opera conducted by Gianfranca De Bosia - and the title role of Robert Devereux. He also portrayed Junoš in Smetana’s The Brandenburgers in Bohemia or Fernando in The Tempest by Fibich.
 
He became a regular guest of numerous European theatres, for example: Teatro Massimo di Palermo, Teatr Wielki in Warsaw, Teatro Comunale di Bologna, the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava, State Theatre Košice, the National Theatre in Prague and Brno, the State Opera in Prague, and others.
