Mexican tenor Javier Camarena Ah! Mes Amis from Gaetano Donizetti’s La Fille du Regiment. Vocalis México – International Vocal Academy and Festival. Teatro Obrero – Zamora, Michoacán, September 3, 2012.
Javier Camarena was born in Xalapa (the capital city of the Mexican state of Veracruz) in 1976. He started his vocal studies at the Universidad Veracruzana under the tutelage of the vocal teacher Cecilia May. He has recently become the rage in the world of opera, after joining the select group of Luciano Pavarotti and Juan Diego Flórez, becoming the third singer in the last 70 years of the Metropolitan Opera House to offer an encore, after nailing multiple high Cs and even an interpolated high D in La Cenerentola, an operatic dramma giocoso in two acts by Gioachino Rossini.
Here a more recent version (July 4, 2014) of the famous aria by Camarana. Orquesta Sinfónica de Xalapa, conductor: Lanfranco Marcelletti. Coro de la Universidad Veracruzana, conductor: Alfredo Domínguez.
