The New Lyrique Boys Band is an a capella music and humor quartet that performs opera and liturgical pieces as well as Jazz or US Pop.
Formed by two Tenors, Fabrice Maitre and Olivier Hernandez, and two Baritones, Christophe de Biase and Olivier Naveau the band demonstrates that there is no limit between styles, that any instrumental piece or any song can be embellished with lyrical sauce and that any great classic can be turned into Rap or Hip-Hop among others.
Their shows feature covers of Mozart, Michael Jackson, Verdi, The Beatles, Bizet, Schubert, Psy or John Williams.
The first one, “Chevauchée Lyrique”, created in 2009, was a success at the 2012, 2013 and 2015 Festival d’Avignon. The second one, “La Do Re etc.” was created at the Festival d’Avignon again in 2014 and directed by François Rollin. And finally, “TENORISSIMO!” was inspired in 2017, still in Festival d’Avignon and this time directed by Francis Perrin.
