Benjamin Bevan ‘triumphs’ at WNO in Boulevard Solitude
Benjamin Bevan recently made his house debut at the Welsh National Opera singing Lescaut in a new production of Hans Werner Henze’s Boulevard Solitude, directed by Mariusz Trelinski. Bevan’s performance has been critically acclaimed, with the singer “pulling no punches as Lescaut, an unredeemed villain compared to Puccini’s wastrel” (Stephen Walsh, The Arts Desk). Richard Morrison of The Times describes the cast as “faultless"and Paul Mitchell on Radio 3’s Music Matters calls Bevan “fantastic.” Other critics have described Bevan’s performance as “first-rate” and “a triumph.” “The performance is superb down to the smallest role”, says Stephen Walsh, whilst Andrew Clarke in the Financial Times writes that “the entire enterprise is a deserved triumph.”
Benjamin Bevan made his Royal Opera House debut last year in Gloriana and will be returning to the Welsh National Opera this June singing Roderick Usher in Gordon Getty’s Usher House.
