Juan José de León is capturing the attention of audiences and critics alike. Hailed for his “big voice,” and “versatility,” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) the young tenor is rapidly-bursting onto the operatic scene. In the 2012/13 season Mr. de León completes his residency with the Pittsburgh Opera where he appears as Matteo Borsa in Rigoletto, Paolino in Il Matrimonio Segreto, and Don Ramiro in La Cenerentola.
Mr. de León also joins The Wolf Trap Opera in the summer of 2013 where he will perform the roles of Count Libenskof in Il Viaggio a Reims and Dr. Caius in Falstaff. Concert work this season includes the I Sing Beijing American Debut at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center accompanied by The New York City Orchestra as well as the tenor soloist in Rossini’s Stabat Mater with the Erie Philharmonic.
He opened the 2013/14 season making his New York MET company debut with the American premiere of Nico Muhly’s new work, Two Boys (American Congressman).
