Rolando Villazón makes role debut as Pylade at Salzburg Festival
Following his appearance in a star-studded gala to honor Plácido Domingo, Rolando Villazón continues his summer with the Salzburg Festival in his first performances as Pylade in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride. In a revival of Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s 2015 Whitsun Festival production, Rolando stars opposite Cecilia Bartoli in the title role before the two reunite later this year for a multi-city concert tour.
Also featured in the production is Christopher Maltman as Oreste, Michael Kraus as Thoas, and Rebeca Olvera as Diane. Diego Fasolis conducts.
