Bryan Hymel makes his Wiener Staatsoper debut in Madama Butterfly

Screen Shot 2014-04-03 at 4.41.53 PMThis month, Bryan Hymel returns to the role of B.F. Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly for his debut at the Wiener Staatsoper. The American tenor stars in Josef Gielen’s production of Puccini’s lush drama April 5, 9, and 14. Hui He appears opposite Bryan as Cio-Cio San and Jonathan Darlington conducts.

Bryan’s recent turn as Pinkerton at the Metropolitan Opera earned the tenor great acclaim. The New York Times noted that he was “vocally assured as the thoughtlessly callous Pinkerton, singing with a robust tenor and ringing top notes.” The New York Observer concurred, writing: “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.”
