The American tenor sings under the baton of Dan Ettinger alongside Maria Agresta, Hei-Kyung Hong, Susanna Phillips, and Ailyn Pérez in performances from January 6 to 23, and April 15 to May 5.

This December brings Bryan Hymel to Paris for his Opéra National de Paris debut as the title role in Berlioz’s La damnation de Faust. The American tenor has been lauded for his interpretation of Berlioz, Opera News writing that “in ‘Nature immense,’ from La damnation de Faust, Hymel maintains the intensity of Berlioz’s long, emotionally weighted lines with full, dramatic sound and an innate sense of the flow and innerrhythm of the language as it stretches out over the composer’s slowly evolving harmonic unpinning.” Hear “Nature immense” from Bryan’s debut solo album Héroïque on Spotify or iTunes.

Bryan joins Sophie Koch as Marguerite and Bryn Terfel as Méphistophélès in Alvis Hermanis’s new production of La damnation de Faust under the baton of Philippe Jordan from December 23 to 27.
