This week, a few Mexican tenors (there happen to be three) whose repertoire share a common composer: Rossini. Francisco Araiza made his professional debut in the 70’s and was considered *the* Mozart and Rossini specialist of the 80’s. Ramón Vargas made his debut in the 90’s and established himself as a bel canto specialist before graduating to the full-lyric repertoire. Today, Javier Camarena is one of the most sought-after singers in the world, especially for the technically demanding tenor roles in operas by Rossini, Donizetti, and Bellini.


Playlist to include Araiza, Vargas, and Camarena in music of Gioacchino Rossini, María Grever, and Agustín Lara.
