Lucian Krasznec already verified his eligibility for the difficult Light Muse several times and convincingly. The leading tenor-roles in standard operettas like Lehár’s The Tsarevitch and The Count of Luxemburg or The Gipsy Baron and Wiener Blut by Johann Strauß fitted perfectly to the young tenor as did a rarity such as Paul Abraham’s operetta Roxy and her Wonder Team in Dortmund. And now for the first time Carl Millöcker’s ballsy Beggar Student Symon Rymanowicz in the Vienna Volksoper new-production; both a role and a house debut!
“The works of the classical operetta should only be performed by those who vouch expressively for theses and who enjoy singing this music based on this commitment.” The great idol Nicolai Gedda advances this opinion which Lucian Krasznec also feels committed to. He will perform as Beggar Student at the Währinger Gürtel within the opening night on April 30th as well as within the subsequent performances on May 5th and June 3rd, 7th and 22nd, 2016.
