A Triumphant House Debut as Tamino

Mr. Bernheim made his house debut as Tamino in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte on December 15th at the Wiener Staatsoper to rave reviews. Die Presse enthused:

“With his beautifully timbred, warm tenor of great charisma, he shows – not only in a grandiose portrait-aria “- why he is called one of the most interesting tenors of our time: the rich, expressive sound and his ability to sing long lyric lines made his Tamino the event of the evening.”

While Online Merkur similarly heralded him as “one of the most promising lyric tenors of the next generation of singers.

The French tenor sings opposite Valentina Naforniţa as Pamina, Rene Pape as Sarastro, Hila Fahima as The Queen of the Night, and Clemens Unterreiner as Papageno. Adam Fischer conducts, and the production is by Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier. Tickets for subsequent performances, December 18, 22, 26, 28, and 30, can be purchased here.
