Rolando stars in sold-out performances of Verdi’s La traviata at Bayerische Staatsoper

Fresh from the first leg of his critically acclaimed Mozart Concert Arias tour, Rolando Villazón returns to the Bayerische Staatsoper as Alfredo in three sold-out performances of Verdi’s La traviata April 15 to 25. The Mexican tenor stars opposite Sonya Yoncheva as Violetta and Leo Nucci as Giorgio Germont in a production by Andreas Reinhardt. Pietro Rizzo conducts.

Later this month, Rolando returns to the road with the Kammerorchester Basel, continuing his Mozart Concert Arias tour at the Konzerthaus Dortmund (April 29), Philharmonie Berlin (May 2), and London’s Cadogan Hall (May 6). This summer, he appears in recital with Daniel Barenboim at the Teatro alla Scala (May 25), where he also stars in Così fan tutte June 19 to 30. In July, Rolando continues his Mozart opera cycle with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, performing and recording Die Entführung aux dem Serail at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
