Stanislas de Barbeyrac (tenor)
& Alphonse Cemin (piano)

,If the Frenchman tenor Stanislac de Barbeyrac had to chose one composer to take with him on a desert island, then it would be Poulenc: »That's my music, they're my harmonies... !« He has sung the Chévalier de la Force in Dialogues des Carmélites in Amsterdam, Brussels and Munich – and couldn't give a recital, as he recently did in Paris, which didn't include Poulenc. Lieder singing is something this young singer's busy international operatic career doesn't leave much time for, so recitals are something of a rarity. His careful choice of roles and feeling for the right time to sing them have paid off: After two years in the Opéra National de Paris' Opera Studio Stanislac de Barbeyrac began conquering the great stages of the world, in Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Salzburg, London and New York. Roles by Mozart and Gluck are the core of his repertoire – although recent role debuts such as Debussy's Pelléas and Verdi's Alfredo (La traviata) point the way to him singing Werther, Don José, Berlioz’ Faust and Lohengrin at some point in the future. Now you have the chance to hear this highly talented newcomer making his debut at Oper Frankfurt, in recital.

Here's their programme!
