“Joining the orchestra was Diana Damrau, lending her highly elegant soprano to the works. The first song, “Spring,” opened with a rather somber introduction from the strings, reaching a peak during Damrau’s soulful, sustained tones. [...]
The second song, September,” featured a tranquil, repeated theme from the strings, over which Damrau displayed a number of enchanting vocal roulades as she outlined the languid, observational phrases of the text, such as “Summer trembles at the thought that the end is near.” This number made a lovely showcase of Damrau’s vocal delicacy, able to open a phrase with a delicate crescendo, while often ending them with soft holds as if she were embracing the syllables to the fullest. [...]
The legato phrases were wonderfully handled by Damrau as the piece slowly transitioned to a darker, more nightly, atmosphere, with the return of the lark trills punctuating it ever so softly towards a peaceful conclusion.”

Last summer I was singing Violetta in an excerpt from Verdi’s La Traviata in Rudolstadt, Germany, and tomorrow night is opening night for a whole different excerpt of the same role in Vancouver, Canada! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 I’m singing a whole bunch of high notes with @operamariposa on November 15, 16, 22 and 23. For details and (subtitled, accessible and affordable!) tickets, click the link in my bio 💕 Life is full of brilliant surprises. I’m so lucky to get to sing this music all over the place 🌎🌍🌏
#fbf to my days as Parpignol in the Opera Columbus production of Puccini’s “La Bohème”. Today, I upgrade to Rodolfo, and I cannot put in words all the emotions I’m feeling right now. Exactly 10 years ago today, at age 24, I was only beginning to study classical singing, and I never imagined this journey would bring me all the way to Varna, Bulgaria to debut one of my dream roles. Today, I’m super thankful to so many people who paved the way and helped me along the way, and I dedicate tonight’s performance to them. This career is surely full of highs and lows, and this is definitely one of the highest highs yet. Though I am thousands of miles away, I am proud of being Puerto Rican, and I also dedicate this performance to Puerto Rico! 🇵🇷 Someday, I will achieve my ultimate dream of singing in my beautiful island. ❤️ I want to give a special shout out to the people at the Bologna International Opera Academy. If it wasn’t for their belief in me, this would not be happening at all. Another huge thank you to all the pianists m, coaches, and teachers who helped me prepare this role, and all the Mimìs, Musettas, Marcellos, Collines, and Schaunards I’ve sung with in the past. A huge TOI TOI TOI to all my cast members, the chorus, the orchestra, maestro, crew, and everyone involved. Let make people fall in love! Here’s to many more! #doctorarroyo#tropicaltenor#boricuainbulgaria#operasingersofinstagram#roledebut#dreamrole#rodolfo#puccini#laboheme#singerlife#tenor#ilovesinging#operalife#operavarna#varna#bulgaria#debut
