Christopher Lowrey joins Parnassus’ roster
We are thrilled to welcome American countertenor Christopher Lowrey for worldwide management.
Christopher Lowrey is considered to be one of the best countertenors of his generation. A regular guest at the Handel Festival Göttingen for several years, he just returned there to sing in a new production of Rodelinda staged by Dorian Dreher and conducted by Laurence Cummings. His interpretation of Bertarido “was so much more than giving voice to his emotions, for it was a performance founded on solid technique and vocal beauty. He charmed the audience with his vocal clarity, control, and alluring timbre, as he crafted delicate lines, full of subtle embellishments and short light trills”. (Operawire, Alan Neilson)
Other recent operatic roles include Handel’s Resurrezione (Cleofe) with Emmanuel Music in Boston, Vivaldi’s Farnace (title role) with Pinchgut Opera in Sydney, and Handel’s Giulio Cesare (title role) performed at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris.
Christopher has an exciting season ahead of him. He will make his debut at The Metropolitan Opera as Guildenstern in Brett Dean's Hamlet. He will also sing Armindo in Handel’s Partenope at Teatro Real in Madrid, the title role of Giulio Cesare in Oviedo, and a tour of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with B'Rock Orchestra led by Evgeny Sviridov.
Christopher already appears on many CDs. His latest release was Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with Sandrine Piau and Les Talens Lyriques conducted by Christophe Rousset (Alpha).
Welcome to Parnassus, Christopher!
