During the summer of 2020, Yazid was set to return to Chautauqua Opera to sing the roles of Sciarrone in Tosca and Herman Atlan in The Mother of Us All. He was also scheduled to perform on their Afternoon of Song concert series. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those productions and performances had to be canceled.

In the summer of 2019, he made his debut with the company singing Fiorello in Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia.

​In the 2018/19 season, Yazid sang the role of Bello in La Fanciulla del West with Maryland Lyric Opera. He then went on to join Opera Santa Barbara as a member of their Chrisman Studio Artist program. During this time, he performed the roles of Schaunard in La Bohème, Zaretski in Eugene Onegin, Le Podestat in Le docteur Miracle, and Thomas Putnam in The Crucible.

Yazid made his professional debut in the summer of 2018 as Charlie in Jake Heggie’s Three Decembers with Opera Maine.
