Bryan Hymel shines in Opera Company of Philadelphia debut

Bryan Hymel’s Opera Company of Philadelphia debut has been a tremendous success. Bryan starred as Rodolfo in a new production of La bohème, hailed by David Patrick Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer as “an absolute success, full of fine singing and acting and eye-filling stage direction in this romanticized slice of life of struggling artists in late 19th-century Paris.” “Bryan Hymel sang the leading tenor role of Rodolfo showing his high notes are easily among the best in the business. The rest of his voice is so attractive, and his presence so winning…” Performances runs through October 7. La bohème will be broadcast on the big screen on Independence Mall, October 6. Admission is free but registration is required. Click here to register.
