He has also opened up the world of classical and opera music to new listeners and generations, from his highly acclaimed lead performances to his prime-time appearance as a mentor on the ITV series Popstar To Operastar. For this special live date, Villazón will perform Mexican songs including BéSame Mucho and El Reloj in new arrangements, with accompaniment from the Bolivar Soloists.
Rolando said: “I’m excited to bring my music to this different, mixed forum. I hope every audience member will bring their own style to the concert and will not stifle their impulses to rock’n'roll and have a great time.”
Rolando Villazón will play at The Roundhouse on July 15.
