    Luiz Gazzola has interviewed up and coming American tenor Bryan Hymel in London [Opera Lively interview # 44], in person, in premises kindly offered to Opera Lively by the Press Department of the Royal Opera House (thank you Ms. Ann Richards, and thank you Kate Davis - production pictures were also sent to us by the ROH and are to be credited to ROH 2012 / Bill Cooper, used with authorization). Bryan was singing Énée, the main male role in Berlioz's masterpiece Les Troyens at Covent Garden, a run that has just finished and earned the young tenor the utmost praise from the British press. Opera Lively interviewed the great Anna Caterina Antonacci in association with the same production; see her intelligent answers [here]. You may also want to consult our extensive series of in-depth articles (nine of them) on all things Les Troyens, including detailed musical analysis and considerations about its literary source, greatest singers, its symbolism, trivia, etc. - read them [here]. Without false modesty, I'd say that they are among the best reference material one can find in the Internet about this outstanding opera (Almaviva's third favorite after the Ring and Tristan und Isolde).

    Bryan's enthusiasm for the big breaks he's been getting in his still short career are contagious (Jonas Kaufmann was scheduled for this role but withdrew due to illness, opening space for still another choice opportunity for Bryan), and we feel happy for this fellow American who is making it big in Europe, and has been singing in prestigious houses such as La Scala, Covent Garden, Bayerische, and DNO. He has also had his debut in Houston and is a regular at Santa Fe Opera.
