“Pavarotti, roll over. There’s a new king of the high Cs. …Hymel’s voice is rare these days: a combination of Wagnerian muscle and bel canto refinement, comfortable in the stratospheric register… strong enough to soar above a full orchestra and suave enough for sweet-toned love scenes” NPR

Winner of the 2013 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera, Hymel is a star of the international stage, renowned for his rare combination of emotional power and delicacy. Having recently reprised the role of Rodolfo in a production of Puccini’s La Bohème with the Metropolitan Opera, New York, Hymel will return to the UK for a popular programme that includes songs and arias by Wagner, Berlioz and Bizet. Joined by guest mezzo-soprano Irene Roberts, hailed for her ability to “… sound languorous and sugary, but just as quickly… adopt speed and drama” Atlanta Journal Constitution, the two have an abundance of gravitas and energy that will bring pieces like the final duet from Carmen, C’est toi! C’est Moi! to life.

Watch Hymel perform C’est toi! C’est Moi:

Hymel signed to Warner Music in 2014 and his first release, HÉROÏQUE has been a critical and commercial success. Having charted at number three on Billboard’s Classical Music chart, the release has garnered some heavy praise for the operatic tenor: “If Hymel had been born a generation earlier we might have had The Four Tenors. That’s how good he is.” Sinfini Music.

Still to come this season, we have another duo recital, this time from Charles Castronovo and Ekaterina Siurina, Juan Diego Flórez at the Royal Albert Hall, Javier Camarena returns after his impressive Rosenblatt Recitals debut last year, and the great Italian soprano Mariella Devia, who will surely close our season in spectacular style.
