Standing ovations and critical praise greet Rolando Villazón’s sold-out return to Salzburg Festival


Standing ovations and critical acclaim greeted Rolando Villazon’s sold-out return to the Salzburg Festival, where he performed arias by Mozart and Gluck with conductor Ivor Bolton and the Salzburg Festival Orchestra. Salzburger Nachrichten hailed the performance: “Villazóns Hingabe, sein Gespür für dramatische Affekte ließ ‘Per pietà, non ricercate’ KV 420 und die für Fürsterzbischof Sigismund von Schrattenbach verfasste ‘Licenza’ KV 36 des zehnjährigen Mozart erstrahlen.”

Looking ahead, Rolando Villazón launches the German edition of his novel Kunststücke with the Berliner Ensemble at an event moderated by Wolfgang Herles this Friday, August 29. Be there for the event.
