Meet Diego Matamoros, a baritone who had his debut at the Met and will be making his European premier next season. Hear him talk about singing opera and how opera enhances the experience of the raw power of the music and watch him perform “Per Me Giunto” from Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi with Chun Wei Kang on piano.

    Wonderful!

    I am grateful to the mother who encouraged Diego to pursue singing. The world will, perhaps, be grateful to her as well, one day.

  • Charlene Mullins

    It was a pleasure to hear you sing in New York last spring. Look forward to future performances!

    I’m the mother of the other Diego Matamoros, the Toronto actor,whom I wanted to become an opera singer because he is a baritone like you, but whose calling was theatre and where he is being very successful. I listened to your “Per me giunto” and would enjoy hearing you life. How about contacting Alexander Neef here in Toronto? He is our recently appointed General Director and has to plan the upcoming performances.
    Anyway, lovely to have a Diego Matamoros in opera ! I look forward to hearing you life, somewhere soon. I go to Europe every spring. How about in Valencia? My birth city.
    Toi,toi,toi, y hasta quien sabe!
