One of the preeminent bel canto specialists of our time returns.
After leaving his audiences cheering at his 2019 Los Angeles recital, the enormously charismatic Mexican tenor (who was also unforgettable in his 2017 company debut in The Pearl Fishers) returns to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. This time, he's back for two extraordinary recital appearances, once again partnering with pianist Ángel Rodríguez for performances of beloved arias and passionate songs guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
He's only the second singer in Metropolitan Opera history to be given encores in multiple productions there, bringing audiences to their feet with his jaw-dropping performance of Tonio's show-stopping aria in The Daughter of the Regiment (the one with the infamous nine high C's.)

"If the artists' reception was thunderous before intermission, it was deafening at the recital's end. Only when they returned to the stage with music did it cease. That audience wanted them to perform all night... This was a fascinating performance and I hope Camarena will sing opera in L.A. soon."
