Sade debuted at the New Israeli Opera as Jimmy Mahoney in Mahagonny and has returned to the Israeli Opera every season for roles which have included Lensky in Eugene Onegin, Rodolfo in La Boheme and for the title roles in Les Contes D'Hoffman and Otello. He began a long and intensive collaboration with the Stuttgart Opera where he at first specialized in the lyric tenor repertoire in roles such as Rodolfo in Boheme, Alfredo in La Traviata, the Duke in Rigoletto and Lensky in Eugene Onegin. Sade slowly began to explore more dramatic repertoire. He debuted at the Hamburg State Opera in Il Tabarro, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and in Geneva as Radames in Aida, in Zurich in Tosca and at the Teatro dell 'Opera di Roma in Respighi's rarely heard La Fiamma, returning there subsequentrly as Dimtiri in Boris Godunov as Cavaradossi in Tosca.
