Juan Diego Flórez

Juan Diego Flórez (born in Lima, 1973) began singing and playing Peruvian folk and pop music at a very early age. At 17, he began to study at Peru's National Conservatory of Music and three years later, he won a scholarship to study voice at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.

In 1996, he made his professional debut at the Rossini Opera Festival, Pesaro, stepping in at the last minute to sing the leading role of Corradino in Matilde di Shabran. In spite of the brief preparation time, his debut was a huge hit and marked the start of his stellar career.

His expressive voice and astonishing vocal agility made him an overnight sensation and led to his debut that same year, aged only 23, in the opening of the 1996/1997 season at La Scala conducted by Riccardo Muti. Since then, he has appeared regularly in all major international opera houses under the world's leading conductors, gaining particular acclaim in the leading roles of Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini.
