Garnering high praise with both his performances and his debut album, he has been hailed as “The most beautiful tenor voice since Luciano Pavarotti” by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, and “the new star tenor” by Diapason. In 2020, he was named “Artiste Lyrique de l’Année” (Opera Singer of the Year) at the Les Victoires de la Musique Awards in France, “personnalité musicale de l'année” (Musical Personality of the Year) by Le Syndicat professionnel de la critique de théâtre, musique et danse, Singer of the Year by Oper!

Concerts in May


This May, Benjamin Bernheim makes his debut in Lisbon with the Gulbenkian Orchestra for their season finale. The program, conducted by Lorenzo Viotti, features the Prelude and Liebestod from Richard Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, Richard Strauss’s symphonic poem Aus Italien, and the orchestral song cycle Poème de l’Amour et de la Mer by Ernest Chausson. The three performances are sold-out, but Benjamin will present the French song cycle and Robert Schumann’s Dichterliebe with pianist Carrie-Ann Matheson later this summer in Salzburg.
