William Bouvel has received praised for his lyrical and poignant interpretation of music from the baroque and classical periods. Particular fascination with the music of the French baroque has led William to the unique “haute contre” or high tenor roles of this period. He most recently performed the role of Tantale in a staged production of Charpentier’s La Descente d’Orphée Aux Enfers with Haymarket Opera in Chicago. He has appeared with Baroque Band and the Madison Early Music Festival, and also frequently performs Cantatas and Evangelist roles from the Bach repertoire. Mr. Bouvel was a Young Artist with Opera Lafayette in 2011 and is excited to return to perform with the company in this mainstage performance.
