19:00 Ramon Vargas (Mexico)
Ramon Vargas is one of the leading tenors of our time and among the most sought-after worldwide. Born in Mexico City, he studied at the Cardenal Miranda Institute of his hometown, with Antonio Lopez and Ricardo Sanchez. After winning the Carlo Morelli National Vocal Competition, he made his debut in Haydn’s Lo Speziale in Monterrey, Mexico. His breakthrough came when the Mexican conductor Eduardo Mata hired him to sing Fenton in Verdi’s Falstaff, and later Don Ottavio in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. After winning the Enrico Caruso Tenor Competition of Milan in 1986, he moved to Austria, where he completed his vocal studies at the Wiener Staatsoper Opera Studio Program, under the guidance of Leo Muller. Then he made his European debut in Luzerner Theater in 1988 as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti. In 1990, he met the renowned teacher Rodolfo Celletti in Milan, who became his vocal coach. Ramon Vargas’ Metropolitan Opera debut took place in 1992, singing Edgardo while substituting Luciano Pavarotti in Lucia di Lammermoor opposite June Anderson. This was soon followed by a debut on the stage of La Scala, in 1993, where he sang Fenton in Strehler’s new production celebrating the centenary of Falstaff, conducted by Riccardo Muti. He now regularly performs at all the major opera houses around the world.
