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.

"Edgardo Rocha lässt zu Beginn seiner ersten Cavatine die Sonne aufgehen und die Zeit stillstehen".

...Dafür bekommt die alles andere als uneigennützige Isabella den am schönsten singenden Mann ab: Edgardo Rocha (Lindoro) erweist sich als Rossini-Tenor par excellence mit heller, aber warm timbrierter Stimme, die in aberwitzig präzis gesungenen Koloraturen mühelos bis in die höchste Höhe hinaufgleitet.
