Acclaimed across the globe for the beauty of his voice and the emotional power of his performances, Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez has in his career so far focused almost exclusively on the masterpieces of the bel canto repertoire by Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini, and others.

From his earliest studies at the conservatory in Lima to the present day, Flórez has sung Mozart arias every now and then but he has never sung a complete Mozart opera on stage. “It just hadn’t worked out till now”, he confesses.

And now Mozart, finally. True, the desire had been there for a long time, but “now is the time, I feel I’m ready.” To display another fascinating side to his vocal personality, the concert program includes many of the best-loved Mozart arias – all of them magnificently performed by the Orchestra La Scintilla, an ensemble with outstanding reputation for their historical performance practice, led by Ricardo Minasi.
