Program notes

In front of a captivated audience in Berlin, a colorful recital by the Mexican tenor!

Rolando Villazón is a whirlwind presence—one who spreads joy onstage and off. His fans are fortunate as Villazón is an artist who never gives anything less than his best, with a generosity of spirit as bright as his voice. "What I'm looking for in a concert is a human experience. I want people to take something with them."

In this exceptional concert from the Berlin Philharmonie, film we see Villazón perform bel canto arias by Donizetti, Cilea and Mascagni. He also let himself be filmed (in his shower!) and interviewed backstage where we see him, like a caged lion, waiting for the second part of the performance.

Few artists are as spontaneous and natural. "I wanted to perform ever since I was a small child. But the stage, for me, is also life. The instrument of a singer is his voice, his body, his being even." And he invests all of these fully.
