Bryan Hymel wins Olivier Award

news-item-2At a Royal Opera House ceremony on Sunday evening, Bryan Hymel won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for his trio of performances in Les Troyens, Robert le diable, and Rusalka. The annual Olivier Awards honor achievement in British theater, opera, and dance. Bryan was the only singer to be recognized in the category this year. Bryan’s fellow 2013 nominees for Outstanding Achievement in Opera included conductor Edward Gardner, Music Theatre Wales and Scottish Opera, and the stage management teams of English National Opera and the Royal Opera House.

Just last month the Metropolitan Opera named Bryan the recipient of the 2013 Beverly Sills Artist Award. The $50,000 prize, the largest of its kind in the United States, is designated for extraordinarily gifted singers between the ages of 25 and 40 who have already appeared in featured solo roles at the Met. Earlier this April, Bryan was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Singer Award.

Next season the American tenor will return to Covent Garden from October 17 to November 11, as Henri in a new production of Verdi’s Les vêpres siciliennes. Later in the season Bryan makes his house debuts at the Vienna Staatsoper and Opernhaus Zürich and will return to Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper and New York’s Metropolitan Opera.

Bryan returns to London’s Royal Opera House this fall, reprising his role as the rebellious patriot Henri in a new production of Verdi’s Les Vêpres siciliennes.

The production runs from October 17 to November 11.

Following an acclaimed debut at the Met last season in Les Troyens, Bryan returns to the famed New York house as Lieutenant Pinkerton in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly from January 16 to February 11. This spring Bryan was awarded the Metropolitan Opera’s coveted Beverly Sills award, which acknowledges gifted young singers. Bryan reprises the role of Madama Butterfly‘s Lieutenant Pinkterton later this season, making his house debut at the Vienna Staatsoper from April 5 to 14.

In March Bryan travels to Zurich, making both his house and role debut as the title character of Hoffman in Jacques Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffman at Opernhaus Zürich. The performances run from March 21 to April 4.

On May 16 and 17 Bryan turns to the concert stage, guesting as soloist with the Rotterdam Philharmonic in Verdi’s monumental Requiem, conducted by the orchestra’s Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Bryan closes out his 2013-14 season at Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper, where he makes his debut in one of the most demanding roles in the tenor repertoire: the lovelorn Arnold Melchta in Rossini’s medieval saga Guillaume Tell. The performances run from June 28 to July 13.
