Bryan is “tirelessly superb” in the Royal Opera House’s ‘Vêpres’
In the Royal Opera House’s company premiere of Verdi’s Les Vêpres Siciliennes, Bryan Hymel was deemed “tirelessly superb” by The Guardian. The Telegraph concurred, noting that the American tenor was “just about ideal” and that he “effortlessly navigates the high-flying tenor role… This is first-rate casting.”
“Bryan Hymel has a seductive voice with a powerful, easy top,” added Bloomberg of Hymel’s performance as Henri in Verdi’s rarely-heard political epic. “After his success in the Royal Opera’s recent Robert le Diable and Les Troyens, he deserves his status as Britain’s go-to tenor for grand opera.”
Conducted by Antonio Pappano and co-starring Erwin Schrott and Marina Poplavskaya, Les Vêpres Siciliennes runs at Covent Garden through November 11. The November 4 performance will be broadcast to cinemas worldwide.
