Today, March 26, is the Birthday of another of our most beloved and most respected Tenors our our time…. and along with the also glorious names of Polenzani, Florez, Brownlee and DiDonato, he is making this era, this age, a new golden age of Opera and Bel Canto.
As a Mexican myself, I want to wish a very Happy Birthday, Feliz Cumpleaños to my compatriot, in which I feel very proud of, the extraordinary Javier Camarena!
Along with three other extraordinary Mexican Tenors of different generations, Francisco Araiza, Ramon Vargas and Rolando Villazon (and hopefully now the also fantastic Arturo Chacon Cruz), Javier Camarena has become a new ambassador of Mexican voices and music to the world.
It looks like it was yesterday when Javier surprised the world with his incredible “bis” in “La Cenerentola”!
Thank you Javier Camarena for giving us so many joys with your beautiful, glorious voice in so many wonderful performances, and recently in Bellini’s “I Puritani”
Feliz Cumpleaños, Happy Birthday to the glorious Javier Camarena!
