Lawrence Brownlee & Eric Owens in Recital

  • Featuring - Pianist Craig Terry

Two of today’s most sought-after vocalists and Lyric favorites come together for an afternoon of unforgettable music-making. Eric Owens, called an “American marvel” by the Chicago Sun-Times, stars as Wotan in Lyric’s new Ringcycle. Hailed by the Associated Press as "one of the world's leading bel canto tenors,” Lawrence Brownlee debuted at Lyric to great acclaim in Cinderella and returns for Charlie Parker’s Yardbird this season.

Both artists have appeared at nearly every major opera house and performed with leading orchestras around the world. They join forces for a recital at the Civic Opera House that will feature a thrilling array of repertoire ranging from opera to spirituals, accompanied by Ryan Opera Center Music Director Craig Terry.
