The Spanish singer and conductor is one of the world's greatest opera stars and made his Royal Opera debut as Cavaradossi in Tosca in 1971. Since then he has sung 27 roles for the Company, and conducted Pagliacci, Die Fledermaus and Tosca at Covent Garden. Away from the Royal Opera House, his performances with José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti as the Three Tenors won him worldwide renown and he continues to give many successful gala concerts, appearing at events including the 2006 World Cup, the 1992 and 2008 Olympics and the 2012 La Liga title celebrations for Real Madrid. He is currently General Manager of Los Angeles Opera and is deeply involved with humanitarian works and initiatives.
