Opera gala is May Festival highlight

The United Kingdom takes a back seat at the May Cultural Festival on May 17, when arguably Mexico’s greatest tenor of the moment, Javier Camarena, joins the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra for an opera gala. 

Considered the sensation of the moment in the opera world, the 39-year-old received a rare honor at the Metropolitan Opera last April, becoming only the third singer in 70 years to perform an aria encore, following a prolonged ovation for his second act aria “Si, ritrovarla io giuro (Yes, I swear I’ll find her) in Rossini’s “La Cenerentola (Cinderella).  Camarena will perform works by Gounod, Bizet, Donizetti, Rossini and Verdi. Note that ticket prices are slightly higher for this performance than other festival shows.

Teatro Degollado, Sunday, May 17, 6:30 p.m.  300-600 pesos.
