Overview

The "King of the High Ds" returns with an all-new album of bel canto arias and duets. Juan Diego Flórez once again proves why he is the tenor in demand around the world for the operas of Bellini, Donizetti, and Rossini. In fact, he even broke the 70-year-old taboo against encores at La Scala in Donizetti's La Fille du Régiment, effortlessly tossing off 18 high Cs in a row (twice as many as other tenors)!

For this special album, Flórez is joined by an all-star roster of his friends, including Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, Mariusz Kwiecien, Patrizia Ciofi, and Daniela Barcellona. Rarely have so many talents come together on one recording.
