Rolando is back!
Not only that his name reappeared in different casts in opera houses in Europe (L'Elisir in Vienna, Eugene Onegin in Berlin, Traviata in Zurich) and he already announced a tour in Mexico and several recitals but he went in the studio and recorded a new album and takes part in a British tv show called "Popstar to operastar".
I got the chance to see him in Werther, with Susan Graham, at Opera Bastille. It was an incredible experience. He really gives everything when singing. After that I had a ticket to see one of his Handel concerts, but he got sick and cancelled everything. Now he's back in business and he's on my list. I was soooo close to be in London when he has a concert, but I arrive 2 days after :)Maybe in fall. If you want to know more about Rolando Villazon, visit this great blog dedicated to him.
The new album entitles Tenor will be released on February 8th under Deutsche Grammophon. and to promote it, there is a new channel opened on YouTube - Villazonmusic. Here's what he says about it and listen to some fragments from Una furtiva lagrima, La donna e mobile and O sole mio
