He joined the Metropolitan Opera roster during the 2009-2010 season, the same season during which he appeared as Count Almaviva in the Des Moines Metro Opera's production of Le nozze di Figaro. This summer, Mr. Mayes returns to the DMMO, this time to star as the title role in Mozart's Don Giovanni.
