Like Luciano Pavarotti before him, famed Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez sang his American recital debut for the Harriman-Jewell Series. Since that recital in 2002, Mr. Flórez’s career has exploded into operatic superstardom. He’ll be making his fourth appearance in Kansas City performing the bravura operatic repertoire for which he is known.
Juan Diego Flórez started off singing pop, rock, and Peruvian music. A scholarship to the Curtis Institute set him on course for a career in opera, but it was his triumphant performance while filling in for an ailing singer at Italy’s Rossini Festival that gave the 23-year-old Flórez the attention of the world. In his native Peru, Floréz is not just a singer but a cultural icon, and his fandom spans the globe. Opera News has compared Flórez’s voice “to the engine in a Porsche 911; when you hear it, you know you’re in the presence of something finely tuned and luxurious.”
