Lomeli, David Tenor
Mexican tenor David Lomelí’s recent performances have garnered tremendous critical acclaim with Zachary Woolfe of “The New York Times” calling his New York City Opera performances as Nemorino in “L’elisir d’amore” “a terrific debut” and the “Washington Post”’s Charles Downey proclaiming him “the vocal discovery of the season” for his performances of Rodolfo in “La bohème” at Santa Fe Opera. The 2011-2012 Season takes the talented young performer to stages in the United States, Canada, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Lomelí makes his Glyndebourne Festival debut as Rodolfo in “La bohème”, which he also performs in concert with the Pacific Symphony. His season begins with Canadian Opera Company as the Duke of Mantua in “Rigoletto”, a role he will also perform with the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe and under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel in an August concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. Lomelí makes his Houston Grand Opera debut as Alfredo in “La traviata” and returns to Deutsche Oper Berlin as Edgardo in “Lucia di Lammermoor”. Concert appearances include Verdi’s monumental “Requiem” with Sinfonieorchester Basel under the baton of Gabriel Feltz and a solo recital with the Birmingham Music Club. Over the next few seasons, Lomelí has engagements with San Francisco Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Oper Frankfurt, Oper Köln, and Deutsche Opera Berlin, among others. Successful performances in past seasons have included engagements with Santa Fe Opera and Theater Basel in Switzerland (Rodolfo in “La bohème”); New York City Opera (Nemorino in “L’elisir d’amore”), Deutsche Oper Berlin (Alfredo in “La traviata”); Pittsburgh Opera (Edgardo in “Lucia di Lammermoor”); Opéra de Lille (MacDuff in “Macbeth”); Michigan Opera Theater (Don Ottavio in “Don Giovanni”); and Madison Opera (the title role in Gounod’s “Faust”). Among Lomelí’s most important concert engagements were performances of Verdi’s “Requiem” with Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic and with the Berlin Philharmonic under Maestro Mariss Jansons. He had also sung in concert with the Oslo Philharmonic, Prague Philharmonic, Hamburg Symphony and the Munich Radio Orchestra. In 2006, the Mexican tenor won first place in Plácido Domingo’s prestigious Operalia competition – the first artist ever to win top prize in both the opera and zarzuela categories. He participated in the Los Angeles Opera’s Thornton Young Artist program, San Francisco Opera’s Adler Fellowship program, and the Merola Opera Program; he currently studies with Cesar Ulloa and Anthony Manoli.
