Verdi continues to appear in the tenor from Tenerife Celso Albelo´s repertoire over the next few weeks. After his return to Valencia with his acclaimed Duke of Mantua (Rigoletto) and performing Rossini´s Stabat Mater in Paris, the Spanish singer will travel to Japan, where his triumphant performances have consolidated his position as one of the great opera stars of the moment.  In Japan he will once again take the role of the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto on the 15th, 18th, 21st and 23rd June, in the cities of Nagoya, Otsu and Tokyo, as a special guest on a tour by the Teatro Comunale Bolonia company (Italy).  Alongside the Canary Island singer will be the Sicilian soprano Desirée Rancatore, as Gilda, and Alberto Gazale in the role of Rigoletto.

This summer Celso Albelo will return to the Chorégies d’Orange Festival (12th July), this time taking on the difficult role of Arnold in Rossini´s Guillaume Tell, – an opera with which he garnered great success some seasons ago at the Monte-Carlo Opera and at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris-.  He will also give two concerts in the Canary Islands, one alongside the tenor Javier Camarena (19th July in Costa Adeje, Tenerife) and another with Jorge de León and Pancho Corujo (17th July in the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, Las Palmas).
