LIVE Kicks presents: the thrilling sound of Bravura
Nov 4, 2017 7:30 pm
Bravura is bringing their thrilling baritone voices to the stage at the Golden Civic Centre, with a unique sound that is deep and rich and unmistakably masculine.
Formed seven years ago, the sonically thrilling Bravura is the baritone response to all those tenor-focused vocal groups that have making the rounds.
Comprising three of Canada’s most accomplished leading men from the worlds of opera and musical theatre – Curtis Sullivan, James Levesque, and George Masswohl – the powerful voices of Bravura bring fresh excitement to repertoire ranging from Broadway and pop to Italian folk tunes and classical music’s most emotive arias.
Curtis Sullivan, star of Toronto’s globally esteemed Opera Atelier and the Stratford Festival, has a gorgeous bass-baritone voice that has wowed audiences on Broadway and at innumerable opera houses.
James Levesque is a similarly versatile and adept performer who is equally at home anchoring an opera, commanding the concert stage, or charming the audiences for toe-tapping musicals. Hailed by Opera Canada for his “expressive singing and acting abilities,” Levesque has been performing internationally for 15 years.
Rounding out this terrific trio is George Masswohl, one of this country’s most in-demand leading men. Masswohl has performed lead roles from the Stratford and Shaw Festivals to Halifax’s Neptune Theatre and Broadway touring shows. His suave voice, which shades into tenor range, lifts Bravura’s repertoire to memorable heights.
Together, these three stars combine rich sonorities and passionate gravitas to offer a unique sound that is deep and rich and unmistakably masculine. From the drama of Verdi to the buoyant delights of a timeless Broadway tune, Bravura brings fresh excitement to the concert stage.
