LA CENERENTOLA

Don Ramiro

Wiener Staatsoper

Vienna, Austria

Mr. Lovell sings the leading role of Don Ramiro in Rossini's famous Cinderella tale. For many people, although La Cenerentola was written in very little time, it is the most poetic of all comic Rossini operas. In fact, at the very least in the extremely subtle musical portrayal of the characters, this opera has a singular place amongst the buffo oeuvre. Director Sven-Eric Bechtolf has transferred the action to 1950s Italy, or more precisely to a tiny fictitious nation on the Mediterranean called San Sogno, ruled by the slightly eccentric young prince Don Ramiro, who collects expensive cars.

ARIODANTE

Lurcanio

Wiener Staatsoper

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Lysander

Wiener Staatsoper

Vienna, Austria

 In 1960, Benjamin Britten published one of the best known opera versions of the famous Shakespeare play: an amusing, light, poetic and psychological masterpiece that is one of his most played works of music theatre. Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream was first heard at the opera house on the Ring in 1962; now, after more than half a century, the opera house is producing the work again. Mr. Lovell makes his house debut as Lysander in Britten's whimsical masterpiece.

AUGUST 24, 2019

ADRIANA LECOUVREUR

Poisson

Salzburger Festspiele

Salzburg, Austria

Apart from the ‘passionate love of the protagonist and the moving final act’ it was above all the ‘fusion of comedy and drama in the sumptuous 18th-century setting’ that attracted Cilea to the historical play of intrigue Adrienne Lecouvreur (1849) by Eugène Scribe and Ernest Legouvé. Compared with the other composers of the giovane scuola, Cilea’s music distinguishes itself by a greater lightness, delicacy and transparency, which does not, however, come at the expense of intensity of expression or tragic potential. Mr. Lovell appears as Poisson alongside Anna Netrebko in the title role.

JULY 28 & 31, AUGUST 3, 2019

L'HEURE ESPAGNOLE

Gonsalve

Wolf Trap Opera

Vienna, Virginia

Torquemada is the most respected watchmaker in town, and by extension a very busy man. His wife, Concepcion, has found a number of ways to deal with her husband’s absences…most notably (and romantically) in the company of the poet Gonsalve, who is to arrive at any moment. But when strong and handsome Ramiro comes to the shop with a broken watch and decides to wait for Torquemada’s return, things get complicated. Mr. Lovell makes his role debut as Gonsalve under the baton of Ward Stare.
