Ladies & Gentlemen, we have a tenor!

>> Tuesday, June 16, 2009

This is a clip from the HD broadcast of the Met's production of Lucia di Lammermoor in which the young polish tenor, Piotr Beczala was called out from the audience to sing because of illness on the part of the regularly scheduled singer. Steph and I got to see this performance a couple of months ago on PBS and were amazed by this fabulous tenor and I have been following him since. Here he is as Edgardo in the last scene singing the tragic aria, Tu che a Dio spiegasti l'ali.

I have heard about that incident at the Met, amazing! His voice is truly special. I wish him all the best, most of all that he remains the master of his success and is not being forced to put too much strain to quick on his beautiful voice.

Hi Lynette,

I saw this broadcast live at our local cinema a little while ago. It is a great facility to "be" in New York for the Saturday matinee! He does have a super voice.
