Rolando Sings Papageno in Special Concert Performance


This July, Rolando Villazon sings Papageno in three special concert performances recorded by Deutsches Grammophon as part of the 2018 Baden-Baden Gala on July 7, 11, and 14. Rolando is joined by Regula Mühlemann (Papagena), Franz-Josef Selig (Sarastro), Albina Shagimuratova (Queen of the Night), Christiane Karg (Pamina), and Klaus Florian Vogt (Tamino). Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the RIAS Kammerchor and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Performed in collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon, the concert will be recorded as part of the Mozart cycle—a long-term project to release Mozart’s seven mature operas. Made possible by the generous support of ROLEX, the Mozart cycle also includes the previously released Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Le Nozze di Figaro, as well as La clemenza di Tito, which will be released on July 6.
