On Friday 2 November young Mexican tenor Diego Silva makes his role debut as Romeo in Roméo et Juliette for Luzerner Theater. Diego enjoys a close relationship with Luzerner Theater, where in the 2017/18 season he performed Alfredo Germont in La Traviata, Chevalier Des Grieux in Manon and Tamino in The Magic Flute. Diego will perform his debut opposite Regula Mühlemann as Juliette with Clemens Heil as musical director in a new production by Vincent Huguet. It is an exciting role debut for Diego, after making his Metropolitan Opera debut as Tybalt in Roméo et Juliette in the 2016/17 season, of which the New York Classical Review wrote, “Diego Silva made an exceptional debut as Tybalt, flashing a consistent, buttery tenor and working himself up to burning insistence as he made his fateful challenge to Romeo.”
Further ahead this season, Diego will make his house and UK debut for Opera North as Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi before returning to Lucerne for Alfredo in La Traviata.
