One of the world’s greatest tenors, Juan Diego Flórez will perform for Melbourne audiences via a special recital this November, marking the global sensation’s first performance on Australian soil.
The exclusive tour is presented by Castiglione Arts and Culture, and will be held on Thursday 2 November at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall. Tickets are selling fast.
Juan Diego Flórez is a showstopping singer, having performed at every major international opera house, with numerous popular album releases and global accolades such as being recognised as one of the finest opera singers of all time by the BBC.
Hailing from Lima, Peru, Flórez’s stunningly expressive voice and remarkable agility have earned him widespread critical acclaim, particularly for his performances of the bel canto and French Romantic repertoire. The tenor’s many distinctions include Peru’s highest honour, the Gran Cruz de la Orden El Sol, and being recognised as a Kammersänger by the Austrian government in 2012.
After his Australian performances, Flórez will continue to appear at recitals internationally, including Milan’s famed Teatro alla Scala (La Scala); widely acclaimed as the greatest opera house in Europe.
Opera aficionados and music lovers alike are invited to be a part in this historic event, and witness the awe-inspiring talent of a true musical icon.
