– The Spanish conductor has consolidated his reputation as a world expert on bel-canto
After returning to the Ópera de Las Palmas to conduct Puccini´s opera Turandot, the Spanish maestro José Miguel Pérez-Sierra will make his debut in Paris this June with a concert at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. He will perform a programme centred on Gioachino Rossini repertoire – one of the greatest exponents of Romantic bel-canto – with the Orchestre National d’Ile-de-France, the Chœur Régional Vittoria d’Ile-de-France and various soloist singers. Pérez-Sierra has been especially attached to Rossini since beginning his career and in the upcoming weeks he will continue to be focussing on music by the composer, on which he is a world expert.
In July he will return once again to the Wildbad Rossini Festival (Germany), this time to conduct L’equivoco stravagante on the 13th, 18th, 22nd, 26th and 29th July. Later, in September, he will return to the Ópera Nacional de Chile to conduct six performances of the classic opera Il barbiere di Siviglia on the 20th, 22nd, 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th September at the Teatro Municipal in the Chilean capital.
Later, in October, he will return to Bari (Italy) to conduct another Rossini masterpiece, Tancredi. After the Italian engagement he will then travel to Madrid to perform once again at the Teatro Real, with a concert alongside the legendary Italian soprano Mariella Devia, one of the great stars of bel-canto repertoire of the current time.
