Renowned Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón is set to perform in Monaco on 24th February in an event so hotly anticipated that tickets have already sold out!
For one night only, the versatile Villazón, who is also a well-respected author, radio and TV presenter, and stage director, will perform on stage at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo.
On the programme is a selection of works by Handel, Mozart, Haydn, Verdi, Offenbach and Puccini, and the vocals of Villazón will be accompanied by Conductor Lena-Lisa Wüstendörfer and the musicians of the recently founded Swiss Orchestra.
Villazón’s storied yet varied career started in the 1990s when he was recognised for his vocal talents and awarded the top spot at the Plácido Domingo Operalia Competition.
From there, he went on to headline shows at major venues around the globe, as well as spread his wings into other creative endeavours.
He recently made a foray into stage direction, with one of his career highlights thus far being the highly successful 2023 rendition of The Barber of Seville in Monaco.
The upcoming show will be held on 24th February at 8pm. Tickets have officially sold out, but further information on the concert can be found here.
