Mr. Brownlee, engaged to sing the role of Count Almaviva in four performances of TDO's upcoming production of The Barber of Seville (April 24-May 10, 2020), will share the spotlight with a dazzling group of opera luminaries including:

· South African soprano Pretty Yende

· baritone Lucas Meachem

· bass-baritone Mark S. Doss

· and bass Adam Lau

The first half of the program will feature The Dallas Opera Orchestra, conducted by 2015 Hart Institute for Women Conductors alumna Stephanie Rhodes Russell. In the second half, as the program swings towards gospel and well-known standards, the singers will be accompanied by renowned pianist Kevin miller, whose credits include a recital at the U.S. Supreme Court and an appearance on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series.

The Dallas Street Choir, which has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Washington National Cathedral, and the George W. Bush Presidential Library (among other venues), will appear under the baton of Jonathan Palant, founder and conductor. It was recently featured on PBS NewsHour.
