The new Deutsche Grammophon album brings Mozart’s rarely recorded arias for tenor to new audiences and coincides with, what is for Rolando, a season devoted to the iconic composer. The Mexican tenor is currently singing Don Ottavio at the Wiener Staatsoper in Don Giovanni, and later this month appears at Mozartwoche Salzburg to celebrate the composer’s birthday. This spring, Rolando embarks on a European tour, showcasing Mozart’s rarely-heard concert arias for tenor. And this summer, he can be heard in Così fan tutte at the Teatro alla Scala (June 19 – 30), and at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden in Die Entführung aus dem Serail (July 21 & 24), which will be recorded in its entirety by Deutsche Grammophon as part of Rolando and Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s Mozart opera cycle.
