Javier Camarena: "Fille du régiment" in Madrid

The Mexican tenor Javier Camarena who is currently singing the role of Tonio in Donizetti’s La Fille du Regiment at Teatro Real in Madrid, just reached another milestone in his career path.

After this spring’s incredible Met encore of Ramiro’s aria in Rossini’s Cenerentola, tonight the audience’s breath in Madrid was literally taken away after his extraordinary rendition of Tonio’s famous first aria “Ah, mes ami” with its famous 9 high C’s.

During previous performances of the opera one had the feeling that something amazing was on the verge on taking place. Well, tonight was the night that the magical moment occurred when Mr. Camarena granted the encore of the famous aria. What is even more unbelievable is that the encore was even more brilliantly executed than the initial aria. The audience thanked the Mexican tenor by giving him a standing ovation joined by the chorus on stage.

Since Teatro Real’s reopening, only Leo Nucci had achieved such an extraordinary feat with Verdi’s Rigoletto.

Operaworld wishes to take part in congratulating Mr. Camarena for this remarkable moment of triumph.
