Barihunk Gustavo Feulien is this year's main attraction at the Wilmington Music Festival Feulien, which runs from from Feb. 6 to 9, 2020. He'll be performing on the second night with tenor Michael Rallis and soprano Nikoleta Rallis in an evening of arias and duets.

Other featured artists during the festival include noted pianists and winners of the Wilmington Music Festival  Emerging Artists Worldwide Auditions, who hail from 23 different countries. The concert will include the highly acclaimed American soprano Elizabeth Baldwin. Tickets are available online.

Feulien is an Argentine native who made his operatic debut in 2006 as Mozart's Don Giovanni in his home country, where he also performed Germont in Verdi's La traviata and Figaro in Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia. A first-prize winner at the Il Trovatore International Competition in Argentina, he was also a semifinalist in the Hans Gabor Belvedere International and the Francisco Viñas competitions, and a finalist in Caballé's International Vocal Competition. In 2011, he was awarded the Argentinian Music Critics Association Award for his performances in Wagner's Lohengrin and Mario Perusso's Fedra. In recent years, Feulien has been praised for his portrayal of Scarpia in Puccini's Tosca.
