Bryan stars in a concert performance of Puccini’s Edgar at Oper Frankfurt

HymeOn February 16 and 18, Bryan Hymel stars as the title character in Edgar at Oper Frankfurt. Singing in a concert performance of Puccini’s second and rarely-performed work, Bryan joins soprano Angela Meade, mezzo-soprano Tanja Ariane Baumgartner, and bass-baritone Kihwan Sim under the baton of Marc Soustrot.

Bryan’s previous operatic engagement this year was another Puccini work, Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera. Of that performance, the New York Observer wrote, “Mr. Hymel walked away with the show. His unorthodox, muscular voice commanded attention from the first conversational phrases, gaining authority as the music became more ardent.… At the end of his ‘Addio’ aria, the audience didn’t even wait for the music to finish before roaring its approval.”
