On occasion, a brilliant artist comes along and thrills audiences all over the globe. Here are three excerpts from tenor Bryan Hymel's Album entitled "Heroique."
The operas are: Vepres Siciliennes, Les Troyens (where he made a Met debut on short notice and was a sensation. See Youtube), and Queen of Sheba.
Buy the whole album!!!! As usual, I only give you excerpts, since I would not want him to lose royalties. He is too nice a guy!

I present the magnificent tenor, Piotr Beczala, in arias from Werther, Le Cid, La Favorite, and Romeo et Juliette.
Few tenors in my opera experience have thrilled me as much, and in addition he is the sweetest human being one could know.
I did not give you the entire album, because if you don't buy it, he loses royalties.(I think!)
