This is Opera Lively's exclusive interview # 189, with lyric tenor Jonathan Boyd who will be singing Roméo for Opera Carolina in their upcoming January 2016 production of Gounod's opera Roméo et Juliette.
The work will be presented fully staged (sung in French, with English supertitles) on Sunday, January 24th at 2 PM, Thursday January 28th at 7:30 PM, and Saturday, January 30th at 8 PM, in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the Blumenthal Performance Arts Center. Click [here

As usual Opera Lively will cover the event, but unfortunately we can't be there for the opening night. We will attend the last show and publish a review. In the meantime, we will interview the two principal singers, in an upcoming piece with French-Canadian coloratura soprano Marie-Eve Munger, and in the piece below, with American lyric tenor Jonathan Boyd (the latter, known to the Charlotte public for his excellent rendition of Alfredo in La Traviata
in the 2011 season). Both are exceptional artists with prolific international careers in several European countries and elsewhere, in addition to several domestic appearances, so this production is looking like another winner for Opera Carolina.
