Details on this week’s program:
Episode 17: What a closer! For our final episode of the summer, Austin Opera is thrilled to welcome world-class tenor Bryan Hymel to our studio, with Nyle Matsuoka at the piano. A regular at the Metropolitan Opera, Bryan has earned much acclaim for leading role performances at the Teatro alla Scala, Opéra national de Paris, Royal Opera House, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, and many many others.
Last week, viewers of Episode 16 got a taste of Bryan’s “vibrant,” “towering” voice in a duet from Otello alongside his good friend baritone Weston Hurt. This week, Weston returns the favor – their duet from Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers provides a perfect ovation for “Live from Indy Terrace” until we meet again!
This is our final episode in the summer series. In September, Live from Indy Terrace will return with a series of episodes celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
More on our Special Guest Artist:
Hailed by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung for his “range of expression and vocal power combined with the subtle art of characterization,” tenor Bryan Hymel is the winner of the 2013 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for his trio of performances in Les Troyens, Robert le diable, and Rusalka at London’s Royal Opera House. The New York Times praised his “unflagging stamina and impetuous abandon” during his 2012 Metropolitan Opera debut as Énée in Les Troyens, for which he was presented with the Metropolitan Opera’s Beverly Sills Artist Award.
An exclusive recording artist for Warner Classics, his first solo album Héroïque debuted at number 3 on the Billboard Classical Music chart, and earned Hymel the coveted Georges Thill Prize by the Académie Nationale du Disque Lyrique and the Newcomer of the Year Award from ECHO Klassik.
