He performed Ezio in Attila at the Mikkeli Festival in Finland under the baton of Valery Gergiev, and completed the season with a long European tour singing Ibn-Hakia alongside Anna Netrebko in Iolanta.

He continued his collaboration with Anna Netrebko as Count Luna in Il Trovatore at Mariinsky Theatre and performed Posa in Don Carlo at the Baden-Baden Festival, again under the baton of Valery Gergiev. Sulimsky was also called to sing Prince Kurljatew in Tchaikovsky’s Charodeyka (Enchantress) in Christof Loy’s production at the Theater an der Wien, Marcello in La Bohème in Helsinki and Ibn-Hakia in Dallas. His Eugene Onegin at Malmö Opera under the baton of Michail Jurowski in 2015 was followed by his Swiss debut at the Basel theatre in the title role of Macbeth as well as Don Carlo de Vargas in La Forza del destino.
