Rolando Villazon celebrates Plácido Domingo with Salzburg Festival


On July 30, Rolando Villazón joins an all-star cast of colleagues to fête Plácido Domingo and the 40th anniversary of the legendary singer’s stage debut in Salzburg. The sold-out gala concert marks the tenor’s first of two appearances with the Salzburg Festival this season, followed by his role debut as Pylade in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride in August.

Alongside Domingo himself as well as sopranos Maria Agresta, Ana María Martínez, and Krassimira Stoyanova, Rolando is heard in an evening of arias and duets by Verdi, Puccini, and other verismo composers, led by Gianandrea Noseda and featuring the Münchner Rundfunkorchester.

The concert will be broadcast live with delay by BR-KLASSIK beginning at 6:30pm CEST.
