Lawrence Brownlee, 18th June 2012, Smetana Hall of the Municipal House
American tenor Lawrence Brownlee joined roasters of the best Italian bel-canto singers rather recently, yet, due do his professional debut (Almaviva at Rossini’s Barbier of Siviglia, Virginia in 2002) it was a very quick start. Almaviva is one of his signature roles. Following his triumphant MET debut (26th April 2007) he sang the role at the Vienna State Opera, Washington National Opera, German Opera in Berlin, Teatro Real in Madrid as well as La Scala in Milan. He also gained renown as an exceptional interpret of Donizetti’s characters (e.g. Tonio in La fille du regiment which he also sings at the MET this season) and Bellini’s characters (e.g. Arturo in I Puritani). He was first seen at the Live from the MET broadcasts in 2009 (Don Ramiro in Rossini’s Cenerentola) as well as in the following year (Rinaldo in Rossini‘s Armida), both to a great success. For his Prague concert, the singer chose arias of his signature opera characters which enchanted audiences all over Europe and the US. Mr. Brownlee’s tour is organized by Kapos s. r. o. and House of Music Košice – Bratislava – Praha .
