Richardson Auditorium will transform into the Metropolitan Opera stage for an evening as the superstar tenor Lawrence Brownlee visits for a wonderfully imaginative program of songs. Brownlee has been called “one of the world’s leading bel canto tenors” (Associated Press) and his voice “an instrument of great beauty and expression” (NPR), and over the last five years he has taken the opera world by storm, performing at nearly every major opera house and alongside dozens of world-class orchestras. Recently, he has turned his attention to the urgent and painfully relevant topic of race relations in America, releasing a CD of spirituals and other songs that engage with his African-American roots, in tribute to Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and the Black Lives Matter movement. His program here at Princeton will be half spirituals and half art song, delivered in his one-of-a-kind, glistening belt.

“With his sweet tone, fastidious pitch, and poetic phrasing, Brownlee made familiar fare sound intriguingly fresh, banishing, for a moment, the ghosts of Caruso and Pavarotti.”
