Stars' recitals with piano



January 29., Sunday 19:30

Hungarian State Opera

Song and aria recital in two parts, with Hungarian, English, and same-language subtitles

This format was made necessary by life. By size, the Ybl Palace is one of the medium-sized opera houses, but in terms of beauty it is first class, which we further enhance by lighting it gorgeously. On its podium, or the top of its orchestra pit, the soloist can stand almost fully surrounded by the audience, and accompanied by our brand new Steinway – and of course an instrumentalist partner – he can give a most memorable recital featuring his favourite opuses for voice as well as his sensitively interpreted opera arias in the second part after the interval. Although the Mexican tenor does not appear on the front pages, he has achieved fame with his beautifully coloured lyrical voice, and who would have thought that by the time he steps on our opera stage again, he will be well into the fourth decade of his career! Vargas sticks to his specialization carefully planning his roles, and also feels at ease performing songs calling for more elaborate interpretations.
