Tenorist Roland Villazon will perform Spanish and Latin American songs at the Budapest Palace of Arts (Müpa) on October 1, organisers said.
Villazon returns to the Budapest Müpa after two years. He will be accompanied by pianist Carrie-Ann Matheson.
Born in Mexico City, Villazon first burst onto the operatic scene as the winner of several prizes at Placido Domingo’s Operalia festival in 1999.
Since then, he has performed in A-listed opera houses such as the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, the Vienna Opernhaus and the Staatsoper Berlin. He made his debut at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 2004 and at the Salzburger Festspiele in 2005.
Villazon also works as an opera director and writer.
As organizers said, at this concert, the tenor will be guiding the audience through a relatively unfamiliar world: the Spanish and Latin American songs he has selected will captivate listeners with their unique atmosphere, vibrant temperament and exotic colours.
