World-famous tenor Juan Diego Flórez will return to the Royal Albert Hall in 2017, joined by Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and conductor Lorenzo Viotti for an evening of Mozart, Rossini, Verdi, Gounod and Latin American songs.
Flórez made his Royal Albert Hall solo headline debut in 2012 as part of the Rosenblatt Recitals. Following in the footsteps of Pavarotti and Carreras, Flórez became one of the few great tenors to appear in a solo recital at the Hall, with The Guardian proclaiming that his ‘superstar status cannot be far off’.
Recognised as one of greatest tenors in history, the Peruvian tenor has appeared at all the world’s leading opera houses, concert halls and music festivals, including the iconic Last Night of the Proms concert in 2016. He has received numerous accolades and awards, including Peru’s highest distinction, the ‘Gran Cruz de la Orden del Sol’. He is a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, and in 2011 founded the ‘Sinfonia por el Perú’, an inclusive social project which runs orchestra and choir workshops for underprivileged youth.
‘No Last Night is complete without a star, and the Proms found a shining one in the shape of Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez’. ★★★★
