Making his debut in Don Pasquale at the Teatro Colon Buenos Aires in 1980, the Argentinian tenor sang throughout South America before making his first European appearance at Wexford in 1984 in Cimarosa’s Le astuzie femminili. A natural in Rossini roles, he has sung at Pesaro in Il signor Bruschino and at Aix-en-Provence in 1988 in Armida. He made his debut at the Vienna State Opera in 1990 as Almaviva and in 1993 at La Scala in Tancredi. Among his recordings are arias by Mozart, Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, several Rossini operas, and – for Opera Rara – Mayr’s Medea in Corinto.
