Ray Chenez at the Opera royal Versailles
After his big success in both world premieres of Dionysos Rising in Trento and Vienna and The Circle in Weimar, our exclusive artist Ray Chenez, countertenor, is back on the baroque field. This past weekend Ray sang the role of Il Paggio in a new production of Ercole Amante at the Royal Opera of Versailles. This production has previoulsy been presented at the Opéra Comique in Paris in early November 2019.
After Ercole Amante Ray Chenez will be back on stage as Angel in the new production of The Damon at the Opera national de Bordeaux in February 2020. Ray's repertoire includes roles like Nerone (L'Incoronazione di Poppea), Hunahpu (The Indian Queen), Athamas (Semele) and many more. Ray is also currently preparing the roles of Nerone (Agrippina) and Serse (title role). In September 2018 Ray sang an excellent Irina (Tri Sestri) at Oper Frankfurt and was an amazing witch (Saul) at Theater an der Wien, where he will be back in 2021.
His solo program called BroadRay, which was premiered in Pretoria in August 2020 is attracting a lot of attention. More BroadRay concerts are scheduled for 2020.
