Bryan Hymel to make his San Francisco Opera debut in the 2014-15 season


Following acclaimed performances in Berlioz’s Les Troyens at London’s Royal Opera House and New York’s Metropolitan Opera, American tenor Bryan Hymel will bring his “impassioned and confident performance of a heroic role” (the New York Times) to San Francisco Opera.

Revisiting David McVicar’s production from Covent Garden, Hymel will star as Trojan warrior Aeneas opposite his Metropolitan Opera castmate Susan Graham as Dido. His costar from the Royal Opera House, Anna Caterina Antonacci, returns to the role of Cassandra, sharing the role with Daveda Karanas. American mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke is also heard as Anna. Donald Runnicles conducts performances running from June 7 to July 1, 2015.
