About me

The uruguayan tenor Edgardo Rocha is one of the most celebrated exponents of the bel canto repertoire. Praised for his velvety voice, fizzy coloratura and bright high notes, he performs in leading roles at the world’s top opera houses. In 2010, at the Festival della Valle d’Itria Martina Franca, he made his debut as Donizetti’s Gianni di Parigi, role written for the great tenor Giovanni Battista Rubini. Due to the obtained success, he began his career in Italy and abroad.

"Rocha is that rarity, a true Mozart and Rossini tenor. His voice has a delectably light bloom and glint, yet also a welcome vein of steel at the top when a higher volume level is called for. He reminds me already of such outstanding exponents of this repertoire as Alfredo Kraus and Luigi Alva. And he is dramatically accomplished also. This is clearly a singer with a stellar career before him."

As Don Ramiro, the young Uruguayan tenor Edgardo Rocha both looks and sounds quite the dashing Prince Charming. The voice is very flexible, the timbre bright and seductive, perfectly suited to this repertoire. His performance of the showpiece aria “Sì, ritorvarla io giuro” earned him some of the loudest cheering of the evening.
