The Argentine tenor Marcelo Álvarez is considered one of the most important singers of his generation. His remarkable talent was discovered by the great tenors Giuseppe Di Stefano and Luciano Pavarotti, who encouraged him to sell everything he owned and move to Europe to pursue an operatic career. He made his international debut in 1995 with the role of Elvino in Bellini’s La Sonnambula at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice. Since then, his career has taken him to opera houses around the world. He has worked with renowned conductors such as James Levine, Zubin Mehta, Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Riccardo Chailly and Antonio Pappano. His operatic repertoire has followed the natural development of his voice and ranges from bel canto roles via French opera to the great lyric tenor and verismo roles. We will hear him at Cankarjev Dom together with the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Constantine Orbelian.
