Zerlina's barihunk dilemma in Monte-Carlo

Erwin Schrott and Fernando Javier Radó in Don Giovanni
Two of the hottest barihunks ever to step on stage for Mozart's Don Giovanni will actually share the spotlight in the same production. South America should be proud, as Argentinian Fernando Javier Radó and Uruguayan Erwin Schrott sing Masetto and the title role respectively at the Opera de Monte-Carlo from March 20-29.

The all-star cast also includes Sonya Yoncheva. the hottest soprano sensation in the world right now, as Donna Elvira. Patrizia Ciofi sings Donna Anna, tenor Maxim Mironov takes on the role of Don Ottavio and Adrian Sampetrean rounds out the low male voices as Leporello. Loriana Castellano as Zerlina must have the most enviable job of all, as both Masetto and Don Giovanni vie for her attention.

Erwin Schrott sings "Madamina" from Don Giovanni:

If you can't make it to Monte-Carlo, Radó will be singing Masetto at the Paris Opera this Fall and at the Dutch National Opera next Spring. Schrott will sing the title role again on August 29th at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, Switzerland. 

Fernando Javier Radó was born in Buenos Aires and in 2006 he became the youngest member of the Colón Theatre choir and the Colón Theatre’s Superior Arts Institute.
