Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas is one of the greatest singers of our time, who successfully performs on the best stages of the world. He belongs to a generation of tenors who debuted on the world stage in the late eighties. In 1992, Vargas made an amazing international debut when the Metropolitan Opera invited the tenor to replace Luciano Pavarotti in the opera “Lucia de Lammermoor”. Ramón Vargas continued the great singer’s success. In 1993 he made his debut at La Scala as Fenton in the new staging of “Falstaff” performed by Giorgio Strehler and Riccardo Muti. Vargas was honored to open the season in Met with the Herzog party in Rigoletto in 1994.

Ramón Vargas actively gives concerts all over the world. His repertoire is every diverse, it consists of a classic Italian song, romantic German Lieder, as well as of songs by French, Spanish and Mexican composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Today Ramón Vargas is probably the most famous tenor on the planet. He closely cooperates with Anna Netrebko, Elina Garancha, Rene Fleming and Riccardo Muti. He often participated in opera performances with Dmitry Khvorostovsky (PI Tchaikovsky “Eugene Onegin”, G. Verdi “Troubadour”, and many others).

The opera “Troubadour” gained fame, recognition and love thanks to it melodic richness. It was the music of this opera, full of passion, anger, anguish, and sometimes the most gentle and sublime lyrics that won her immense popularity.

The director's decision will help the audience to empathize with the heroes and fully immerse themselves in the story. This is a typical romantic drama with tangled intrigue and bloody denouement, with fights, revenge, poison and fatal secrets. Romantic dramaturgy attracted Verdi by the brilliance of colors, sharpness of stage situations and hot passion. The plot fascinated the composer so much that he wrote the music for “Troubadour” in 29 days.

It will be the first experience of staging an opera in Russia for a dramatic director Igor Lysov. Before he staged operas in Salzburg (“The Magic Flute”) and Warsaw (“The Polish Epos”).
