Opera Star Matthew Polenzani Returns Home for ‘Magic Flute’ at Lyric
Last week, Chicago Classical Review asked the question, “Is there a better Mozart tenor before the public than Matthew Polenzani?” Their answer: “Unlikely.”
Their answer: “Unlikely.”
The publication’s conclusion follows the acclaimed singer’s latest performance at Lyric Opera of Chicago, where he got his start as a young singer. Polenzani, the pride of Evanston, has become one of the world’s top operatic tenors and these days he’s often heard at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the major opera houses of Europe. Fortunately, he returns home often to share his gifts.
