The Círculo del Liceo hosted the presentation of the book "Amadeus en bicicleta" by Rolando Villazón, renowned Mexican tenor.
Rolando Villazón is one of the most sought-after performers of his generation and is a regular guest on the most renowned stages such as the State Operas in Berlin, Munich and Vienna, Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera New York as well as the Salzburg Festival. He frequently collaborates with leading orchestras and conductors such as Daniel Barenboim and Yannick Nézet-Séguin on concert stages all over the world.
His book "Amadeus en bicicleta" tells the story of the young Mexican Vian Maurer, who, during the Salzburg Festival, seeks his opportunity in the opera world. The book is a call to pursue one's dreams. With a lot of humor and unforgettable scenes, Rolando Villazón creates a character that can only be loved, while erecting a tribute to the best composer of all time and to his hometown.
The event featured the participation of Maricel Chavarría, editor of La Vanguardia since 1989, and head of the opera, dance and classical music areas for the Culture section.
