Javier Camarena returns to the series having made his sensational debut last season. Hailed as “one of the most exciting tenors singing today” (Huffington Post), he made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 2011 and became the third singer in modern times to give a rare encore at the Met – preceded only by Luciano Pavarotti and Juan Diego Flórez – after stepping in for Flórez in La cenerentola in 2014.
“Javier Camarena had a triumphant evening, singing with a hearty, burnished tone... He’s a singer capable of gladiatorial power but also subtle shadings, supple phrasing and a thoroughly convincing Italian flavor.”
New York Times
“In Javier Camarena, it was clear the company had a new star, a rival to fellow tenors Juan Diego Flórez and Lawrence Brownlee for the title of 'King of the High C's.’ Mr. Camarena's voice combines the flexibility and high range usually associated with the 'tenore di grazia' type with an unusual depth and richness of timbre.”
