Rolando owes his international breakthrough to Verdi: he has made opera history in La Traviata, Rigoletto and Don Carlo, as well as being a celebrated interpreter of the breath-taking Requiem. This is Rolando's own personal tribute to one of history's most popular composers.

‘Verdi is the perfect match for Villazón's ebullient style: the wracked remorse he brings to ‘Ciel, Che Feci!' from ‘Conte di San Bonifacio', is the vocal equivalent of weeping. The Duke's cocky promiscuity is evident in every syllable of Rigoletto's ‘Questo o Quella' and ‘La Donna è Mobile'.' The Independent

‘...he's singing with feeling; singing an intelligent programme, too... Throughout, the greasepaint in Villazón's singing finds a match in the fiery dash of the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino and its conductor Gianandrea Noseda, always strong on drama, rhythm and colour. And don't miss the Villazón caricature of Verdi inside the packaging: a sweet personal addition' The Times

‘The most satisfying aspect of Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón's anticipatory homage to Verdi... is the actual choice of music, which presents snapshot arias encompassing his lifespan, and also includes works outside the operatic canon... Villazón, accompanied by the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino, offers passion and thrills aplenty, enough to offset the odd rough-hewn phrase.' The Scotsman
