European concert tour with Cecilia Bartoli
December finds Rolando Villazón on the road with mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli, reuniting after their triumphant performances at the Salzburg Festival this year in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride. Along with Orchestra La Scintilla, the dynamic duo offer arias, duets, and opera scenes by Mozart, Rossini, Bellini, and Donizetti.
Rolando and Cecilia begin at Zurich’s Tonhalle on December 1, before heading to Munich’s Gasteig on December 3. They then are heard at Prague’s Smetana Hall on December 6, followed by Berlin’s Philharmonie on December 8. Later in the month, they appear at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw on December 14, London’s Barbican Hall on December 18, and the Philharmonie de Paris on December 20 before closing out the tour at Luxembourg’s Philharmonie on December 22.
