Born in Durango, Mexico, the tenor is a first-year member of the Ryan Opera Center Ensemble. He will sing at Lyric this season in Don Carlos and Proximity. His appearances in Mexico include Don José/Carmen (Toluca Philharmonic Orchestra); Borsa/Rigoletto, Count Almaviva/The Barber of Seville and scenes from Il trovatore (Orquesta Sinfónica del Estado de México); and Rossini’s Stabat Mater and Petite Messe Solennelle, as well as an opera gala with Ramón Vargas (all at Mexico City’s Palacio de Bellas Artes). Luévanos was previously a two-year member of the Opera Studio at the Bellas Artes, where he is scheduled to return to appear in Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. A former participant in the International Summer Program in Sankt Goar, Germany, he is also a 2021 and 2022 winner of the Mexico District in the Metropolitan Opera Laffont Competition.
At Lyric during the 2022/23 season, Luévanos will be heard in Ernani, Don Carlos, Carmen, and the world premiere of a trio of new American operas collectively entitled Proximity.
