Opera Arias / Ramon Vargas
VARGAS; BUDAPEST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA; FRIZZA
This is an exciting new release featuring one of the most highly regarded lyrical tenors of today’s opera world. Vargas’s interpretations of Mozart, Bellini and Donizetti are celebrated throughout the world. He rose to considerable fame deputising for Pavarotti in a New York Metropolitan production of Lucia di Lammermoor. In recent years Vargas has turned to French repertoire (Gounod, Massenet) and has also devoted himself to Puccini and Verdi operas. Some of these arias he has recorded here for the first time.
