Now Available: Bryan Hymel in Les Troyens

$wm1_0x700_$_OA1097D_covThe Royal Opera House’s 2012 production of Berlioz’s Les Troyens is now available on DVD and Blu-ray on the Opus Arte label. Starring as Aeneas, Bryan Hymel was praised by the New York Times for his “bright muscular voice with clean top notes,” while Gramophone magazine dubbed the American tenor’s account of the demanding role “glorious.”

“We will be hearing a lot more of Hymel – he put me in mind of Vickers, his predecessor in the role,” added Gramophone. “And he carried the mantle of the Trojan hero with aplomb.”

In Berlioz’s epic five-act opera, Bryan stars opposite Eva-Maria Westbroek as Dido and Anna Caterina Antonacci as Cassandra. Antonio Pappano conducts the production, directed by David McVicar.

Bryan is “tirelessly superb” in the Royal Opera House’s ‘Vêpres’

Bryan_Hymell-5879-2In the Royal Opera House’s company premiere of Verdi’s Les Vêpres SiciliennesBryan 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.
