Arturo Chacón-Cruz In Concert
An Evening of Opera Favorites, Zarzuela And Mariachi
Accompanied by Jeremy Frank on piano and Mariachi Continental de México
We are very excited to welcome the Company debut of Mexican tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz at the California Center for the Performing Arts, Escondido. Mr. Chacón-Cruz has established himself in recent years as a leading tenor with exciting appearances in renowned theaters and concert halls across the globe. He has sung over 60 roles in more than 30 countries. He is the 2005 winner of the Operalia Competition.
Recently Chacón-Cruz was asked why people should listen to his an upcoming concert. He responded: "I think it’s a good way to allow yourself to be vulnerable and to allow yourself to process a lot of what we are feeling. I want it to be cathartic. I want it to be something that will encourage you if you have tears in you to let them out if you have despair to change it for hope. Music has this ability to find within you to look forward. It can make you also sad. but through the sadness and the tears it's how you take those feelings out and exchange them for something more positive.” Prepare yourself to be swept up in an exciting concert of opera favorites, zarzuela, mariachi, and Chacón-Cruz’s personal favorites.
