"...the major French lyric tenor the opera world is longing for."
"...luminous timbre, the piercing high notes are accompanied by a rare intelligence of phrasing"
"...this is one of the most interesting tenors of our time"

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.

The theaters in France are also scheduled to open in May, allowing Mr. Bernheim’s concert on May 19th and 20th at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées with Pretty Yende to be maintained, assuming there are no changes at the last moment. A concert of opera arias and duets, more information can be found here.
