This meeting on the operatic stage of a sunny Mexican and the outstanding Russian bass of the moment is a concert of friends. His masterly Philip II two seasons ago here with Gianandrea Noseda and the musicians of Turin left us speechless as he totally inhabited this imposing role (which he will reprise at the Opéra de Paris in autumn 2017). These two should hit it off well in this programme of light and shade.
