This week’s Staying Alive video features bass Rhys Lloyd Talbot singing “If Ever I Would Leave You” from the Broadway musical Camelot by Lerner & Loewe. He is accompanied by Lyndon Meyer.
Opera Today praised Talbot for his “rolling, oaken sound [that] pours out with incredible ease, yet always with dramatic conviction and appropriate coloring.” Last season, he played the role of Zuniga in Tulsa Opera’s production of Carmen.
In this song from Act II of Camelot, Guinevere and Lancelot are unable to deny their feelings for each other. She tries to send him away, but he refuses, singing “If Ever I Would Leave You.”
