Rolando Villazón returns to Bayerische Staatsoper to star in Les Contes d’Hoffmann
Beginning March 28, Rolando Villazón stars in the Bayerische Staatsoper’s production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann, reprising his acclaimed performance in the title role of Jacques Offenbach’s opéra fantastique. The New York Times lauded Rolando’s first appearance in Richard Jones’s staging, admiring how “[the voice] is warm and burnished, with liquid in the tone… It was a pleasure to hear his voice sounding fresh and virile, as the tenor related and enacted episodes involving the poet Hoffmann’s unhappy love life.” “He rightfully received tumultuous ovations,” noted Kurier.
Performances take place March 28 & 31, and April 4.
