About the Event

Experience star tenor Juan Diego Flórez in the world‐famous Arena di Verona. Save the date!

The Arena di Verona is the third largest Roman amphitheatre still standing. Built around 30 AD, the Arena is also among the best‐preserved amphitheatres of the period. Its gigantic dimensions (140 meters long and 100 meters wide), and seating for over 30,000 spectators, ensure it dominates the northern part of Piazza Bra. Excellent acoustics and a fabulous location make it an ideal venue for large‐scale opera performances. The monument was re‐established as a theatre during the Renaissance, and in 1913 the tradition of opera at the Arena di Verona began with a production of Giuseppe Verdi's 'Aida'.

Artists

Tenor: Flórez, Juan Diego

Juan Diego Flórez is considered the bel canto tenor of choice in major opera houses around the world. His expressive, effortless, and virtuoso singing makes him ideal for the operas of Rossini, Donizetti, and Bellini. His performances in opera as well as in concert, at the world most important stages, have won him great acclaim by public and critic.

Born in Lima, Peru, he studied at the National Conservatory of Music in Lima and at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. In 1996 he made his official debut at the Rossini Opera Festival, in Pesaro (Italy), substituting for the main role who fell ill. He was considered an overnight sensation, drawing attention from theaters like La Scala, where he made his debut the same year, at only 23.

Juan Diego has enjoyed great success at theaters such as the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Royal Opera House (Covent Garden) in London, Vienna State Opera, Paris Opera, Madrid's Teatro Real, Bercelona's Gran Teatro Liceo, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Zurich Opera, Deutsche Oper in Berlin, Salzburg Festival, etc.
