Cecilia Bartoli and Rolando Villazón at the Barbican – 18th December 2015


Arias, duets and opera scenes by Mozart, Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti.

Cecilia Bartoli and Rolando Villazón are undoubtedly two of the finest singers of their generation. Few vocalists can boast a career as glittering as Bartoli, the mezzo whose career-long relationship with the music of Mozart has made her one of his finest interpreters, while the Mexican tenor’s own journey with the Enlightenment masters has drawn widespread critical acclaim. This evening is a rare opportunity to hear the two voices dovetail in a glorious programme of operatic duets.
