Counter-Tenor
Brazilian countertenor José Lemos is noted worldwide for his unique artistry in opera and concert. Of a performance as Giulio Cesare with Boston Baroque, the Boston Globe said, “…Lemos sang with a big, colorful, sexy tone and almost recklessly brilliant coloratura.” During the 2012-13 season include he made his debut at Opera de Nice performing the role of Policare in Scarlatti’s Tigrane, which will be released as a DVD on the Dynamic label; returned to Vlaamse Opera as Narciso in Handel’s Agrippina; and portrayed his acclaimed role of King Darius in the medieval Play of Daniel directed by Mary Anne Ballard and Drew Minter as part of the 75th Anniversary of the Cloisters of the New York City Metropolitan Museum of Art. In the 2013-14 season he records the role of Nerea in Steffani’s Niobe with the Boston Early Music Festival; and performs Handel’s Messiah at Avery Fisher Hall with the Peniel Concert Choir, and Ottone in Agrippina with Operamission. In addition, his debut solo CD “Io vidi in terra” was released in September 2013 on the Sono Luminus label.
