Tenor Eduardo Villa, who performs regularly at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and around the world, brings his vocal artistry to the Methow Valley on Saturday, Oct. 13.
With a varied repertoire that ranges from opera to art songs, Villa is one of the most sought-after singers on the world stage.
Villa’s favorite role is “Otello,” but he has also played leading roles in operas including “Aïda,” “Turandot,” “La Gioconda,” “Madama Butterfly,” “Carmen” and “La Bohème.” His engaging approach comes from his background in musical theater and his commitment to his craft.
Villa will sing art songs in Spanish, German, French and Italian, as well as arias from well-loved operas. He’ll be accompanied by pianist John Pickett, who has performed many times in the Methow.
Villa plans to feature music by Wagner, Verdi, Bizet, Strauss and Schubert. Villa will also work with music students at Liberty Bell High School, and some of the young musicians are expected to join him on stage in the concert.
Cascadia Music brings Villa to the Methow Valley Community Center in Twisp at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13. Tickets are $25 for reserved seats, $20 for general admission and $5 for students.
