David Alegret, a Rossinian out to conquer Europe
-The tenor from Barcelona takes his roles to France, Germany and Great Britain. October 2013 The tenor David Alegret, who hails from Barcelona, has just added a new feather to his cap with his debut last September at the Ópera de Metz (France) in the role of Prince Don Ramiro in Rossini’s La Cenerentola. The Spanish singer, who is specialized in bel canto repertoire, is returning once again to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, a short while after his acclaimed comeback last season with Il turco in Italia, also by Rossini. He will also return with the aforementioned Cenerentola to the Vienna Volksoper. Among other engagements, this year he has also performed Mozart’s Requiem in Seville and has taken part in the Spanish premiere of Das Liebesverbot, by Richard Wagner, at the recent Castell de Peralada Festival celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of the German composer. David Alegret returns to the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona this October with Beethoven’s Mass in C Major, and in November to the Barcelona Liceu with the oratorio Atlàntida, by Falla. At the beginning of 2014 he will tour Belgium with Mozart’s Mass in C minor, performing in Ghent and Antwerp with the Vlaamse Opera Orchestra. In January he will return to the Toulon Opera House in France with his acclaimed Don Ramiro before returning to Hamburg Opera House with Il turco in Italia (January-February). Later he will travel to the Welsh National Opera, in Cardiff, to make his debut with the company with two operas: Mosè in Egitto and Guillaume Tell, both by Rossini.
