The many passionate, fiery or lyrical vocal pieces of Spanish zarzuelas have continued to thrive in concerts and recitals all over the world. One of the most renowned and ardent supporters of zarzuela melodies is Plácido Domingo. Belying his 66 years, the world-famous tenor sings these rousing, seductive melodies with the beguiling sweetness of a much younger man and transports the enraptured listener to the calles and plazas of Madrid and Seville. Domingo is accompanied by the Mozarteum Orchestra under Jesús López Cobos and, above all, by his partner for the evening, soprano Ana María Martínez. Martínez is appearing this summer in the title role of Rusalka at Glyndebourne. Martínez and Domingo serve up an evening of infectious good spirits and exquisite vocal treats. "The dazzle of genuine stars shone brightly over Salzburg!" (Die Welt)

"The most beautiful voice of Latin America…" Berliner Zeitung on Ana María Martínez

"a beautiful woman with a fascinating voice, full of velvety mezzoish half-tints in the middle and bottom ranges, with a gleaming top." The Times on Ana María Martínez

"The greatest operatic artist of modern times" The Guardian on Plácido Domingo

BBC Music Magazine

*****

“A live concert of zarzuela, the genre in which Domingo cut his teeth, with the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra delivering stylish playing and soloists assured.”
