This time they take on Mozart’s “La Clemenza di Tito” with a cast that includes Marina Rebeka, Joyce DiDonato, Tara Erraught, Regula Mühlemann, and Adam Plachetka. Deutsche Grammophon releases the star-studded recording. The series continues next year with “Die Zauberflöte” with Villazón as Papageno and Nézet-Séguin conducting.

  1. Surely you mean Villazon will do the Tamino in Die Zauberflote – Papageno is a Baritone role?

    1. Hi Johan,

      This is not a mistake. Villazón will sing Papageno.

      Thank you!
