Remembering the great Mexican Actor Gonzalo Vega, who sadly passed away yesterday at age 69.
And as a link to the Opera Don Giovanni, Gonzalo Vega performed in many years the famous play of Jose Zorrila “Don Juan Tenorio”, which, of course, was also based in the famous legend of Don Juan.
I had the fortune of watching many of his classic performances as “Don Juan Tenorio” and it was always a pleasure to see him perform this role, in every November 1 and November 2.
(There is the tradition to stage Don Juan Tenorio in the day that Mexicans commemorate the death, “El Dia de los Muertos”)
His death is a huge loss for the artistic community of Mexico.
Descanse en paz, Rest in peace, Extraordinary actor Gonzalo Vega.
