Jean-Luc Ballestra sings "Quand la flamme de l'amour" from La Jolie Fille De Perth

Jean-Luc Ballestra was born in 1976 in Nice, France. He took lessons from Eliane Manchet, Jean-Pierre Blivet, Alain Fondary and Gabriel Bacquier.

In 2004, he made debuts with the Opéra National de Paris, Festival du Château de Sedières and in Nice.

In June 2005, he recorded the role of Morales, Carmen, for Decca with the Orchestre National de France, under the direction of Chung Myung-Whun.

So far, Escamillo seems to be his main barihunk role.
