‘A Night at the Opera with Rolando Villazón’

The French-Mexican opera star Rolando Villazón enchants audiences worldwide with his phenomenal vocal mastery and unparalleled charisma. Known as “the most charming of today’s divos” (The Times), Villazón is one of today’s most versatile performers.

Throughout his career, Rolando Villazón has truly won the hearts of the audience. He got his big break in 2005, when he sang Alfredo alongside Anna Netrebko (Violetta) and Thomas Hampson (Germont) in La traviata – staging by Willy Decker at the Salzburg Festival. In the years that followed, he performed all the leading roles for tenor in opera houses such as the Wiener Staatsoper, the Opéra National de Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Milanese La Scala. As intendant of the Mozartwoche, he has recently been focusing more and more on Mozart, both on and off stage. His most recent role? The bird catcher Papageno in The Magic Flute at the Metropolitan Opera!
