To hear Michael Spyres is to be transported to a golden age of singing long past, a time when the most prolific opera composers put themselves at the service of the most talented singers of the day. Berlioz and Offenbach, along with the Italian bel canto trio of Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, would all find in Spyres, who is celebrated in European capitals like few of his contemporaries, one of, if not the most eloquent interpreters of their music today. For his Canadian debut, the American tenor offers a panorama of his incomparable talent, masterfully supported by the Orchestre and Chœur du Festival led by Corrado Rovaris.
