Juan Diego Flórez returns to Madrid with Les Pecheurs de Perles

Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Teatro Real with Les pêcheurs de perles, Georges Bizet's opera about friendship and passion. The Peruvian tenor leads a cast in which he shares the leading role with Patrizia Ciofi and is completed with Mariusz Kwiecien and Daniel Oren conducting the Teatro Titular Orchestra. Together they will weave the story of the fisherman who, for the love of a woman, he betrays his best friend.
The duet in which both swear eternal friendship, "Into the holy temple", happens to be one of the most popular in the repertoire. There will be three functions in concert version in which we will be able to enjoy the second most popular work of the French author, after his great success, Carmen. And if the whole cast turns out dazzling, Juan Diego Flórez shines with his own light.
Juan Diego Flórez continues to grow as a singer, as a media phenomenon and versatile musician, perhaps struggling to get rid of the Rossinian tenor label that for some time was placed almost exclusively on him. During the last years we have seen him interpreting Così fan tutte, Linda Chamounix, Orphée et Eurydice… and now he arrives with Les pêcheurs de perles, in the role of Nadir, what, as he assures, "It's a role I've always wanted to do". He has the privilege of being able to choose the roles himself, so that “I choose all the roles without pressure, what I feel that I can sing”. He arrives in Madrid with the character filmed and ready to make his fans enjoy once again. His first Nadir was heard a few months ago in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where the singer finds a loyal audience. Hence, debuting roles in the land of his admired Alfredo Kraus begins to be a tradition in his career..
