He performed the role of Mantoo, conducted by Kent Nagano for the opening season concert of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in 2018 as one of the two main characters in Chaakapesh, an opera by Matthew Rickets. He was later invited by Yannick Nézet-Séguin to collaborate on the Deutsche Grammophon recording of bass Ildar Abdrazakov, issued in 2019. That same year he made his debut at Opera de Toulon (France) in the rôle of Mathieu (Andrea Chénier). Appreciated for his voice and stage presence, Geoffroy Salvas’s performances have included Valentin (Faust), Don Giovanni (Don Giovanni), Morales (Carmen), Mercutio (Roméo et Juliette), Germont (Traviata), Nero (Nero and the fall of Leahman Brothers), Ein deutsches Requiem (Brahms), Messiah (Handel), Matthäus-Passion (Bach), Le Bal Masqué (Poulenc), Winterreise (Schubert). Singing with various ensembles including: the Orchestre Métropolitain, Opéra de Montréal, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Opéra de Québec have ensured his ability to feel at ease on both the Opera and concert stage.
