Partner Program: Lawrence Brownlee & Eric Owens

Named 2017 “Male Singer of the Year” by both the International Opera Awards and Bachtrack, Lawrence Brownlee has been hailed by the Associated Press as one of “the world’s leading bel canto tenors.” Brownlee captivates audiences and critics around the world, and his voice has been praised by NPR as “an instrument of great beauty and expression…perfectly suited to the early nineteenth century operas of Rossini and Donizetti,” ushering in “a new golden age in high male voices” (The New York Times).

“The towering bass-baritone Eric Owens” is acclaimed for his “magnificent, powerful, unbearably moving” (The New York Times) performances, and has drawn rave reviews for his performances with the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, the Glimmerglass Festival, and more. Hear this extraordinary pair of today’s best singers in a program of operatic classics and spirituals in the historic Attucks Theatre!
