Camarena revisits the best songs and arias in his repertory

Javier Camarena, one of the finest tenors in the world, returns to Barcelona to offer us this recital as part of the celebrations for the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Liceu. Accompanied by his usual pianist, Ángel Rodríguez, he will revisit some of the most characteristic songs and arias in his repertory, ranging from the music of his Mexican homeland to the cream of the bel canto repertory.

Camarena has won himself a place at the Liceu as one of the best loved tenors of his generation and wins rapturous applause wherever he goes. His elegant singing, splendid sunny timbre and natural virtuosity make him a welcome visitor at all opera houses. Yet it is precisely with the Liceu that he is seeking to build an ongoing relationship.

He is remembered in operatic circles as one of the few singers to have encored an aria at the New York Metropolitan. The piece was Tonio's “Ah, mes amis” in La fille du régiment, with its daunting sequence of chest-voice high Cs. That achievement alone would justify his mythical status in the operatic world.
