Benjamin Bernheim makes “exquisite” debut at Opéra National de Paris

Congratulations to Benjamin Bernheim for his house debut at Opéra National de Paris last week, as Flamand in ‘Capriccio‘. 
He has already received great critical acclaim: 
“But for the Paris audience the vocal revelation of the performance was the young French tenor Benjamin Bernheim in the role of Flamand, who is precisely what Richard Strauss imagined: not only wonderful on stage but also possessing a rich voice which promises even more for the future.” – Alain Duault, Opera Online, 20 January 2016
“we are even more overwhelmed by the Composer of the tenor Benjamin Bernheim. He performance was an auditory delight, imbued with youthful charm… the beautiful timbre, the elegance of his diction, the touching sincerity of his performance are all completely in sympathy with the role. It was also his debut at the Opéra de Paris…a revelation! Of particular note was the exquisite beauty of the blend of the voices in the Trio following the Composer’s sonnet…one of the highlights of the evening; spine-tingling.” – Sabino Pena Arcia, Classique News, 22 January 2016
Opéra National de Paris continues its run of ‘Capriccio’ at the Palais Garnier until 14 February 2016. Benjamin’s future engagements include Cassio ‘Otello’ at the Salzburg Easter Festival, followed by performances of Berlioz’s ‘Roméo et Juliette’ at the Dutch National Opera. Adding to his impressive run of house and role debuts, Benjamin will sing the Italian Singer in ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ in his first performances at the Teatro alla Scala in June 2016.
