Product Description

Hailed as the "Brando of opera," Uruguayan bass-baritone Erwin Schrott joins Decca with a deliciously charismatic and seductive debut album. Showcasing some of opera's most famous roles, Schrott demonstrates why audiences and critics around the world continue to cheer at every performance. Acclaimed for his portrayals in the operas of Mozart, Schrott is the first choice at the world's greatest opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera (where he will portray Don Giovanni this fall and winter), La Scala, the Royal Opera House, LA Opera, Washington National Opera and many others.

Schrott's debut album perfectly showcases his distinctive, chocolaty voice and his wonderful talents for characterization. Among the included arias are his favorite Mozart roles as well as repertoire from great 19th-century opera composers such as Verdi, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Gounod. Schrott has emerged as a leading opera star on the world's greatest stages and will continue to thrill many with his resonant and multi-hued voice.
