Two of the world’s top opera stars – Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón and Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov – are joined by dynamic young Canadian maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, future music director of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, for a thrilling choice of dramatic and comic duets. The program features music from great 19th-century Italian and French operas, including the ever-popular Pearl Fishers duet and two contrasting takes on the Faust legend, plus a pair of irresistible encores paying tribute to the two singers’ native lands.
