José Cura


After studying Composition and Conducting in Rosario, he moved to Buenos Aires in 1984 and studied vocal technique with Horacio Amauri, evolving his voice towards that of a tenor with baritone tints, which brought him international fame. Since 1991 he has been a frequent figure in the most prominent theaters. To his interpretations of Otello, Samson, Canio, Calaf and Dick Johnson, he adds in 2017 two new titles: Tannhauser and Peter Grimes.

In 1999 he resumed his career as a conductor, working with the London Symphony and the Vienna Philharmonic, among others. In 2007, the premiere of La Commedia è finita marked the beginning of his career as a régisseur. His productions of Samson and Dalila, La Rondine, Otello, Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci, La bohème, Turandot and Peter Grimes, consolidate his prestige. He is Resident Artist of the Prague Symphony, with which he premiered his oratorios Magnificat, Ecce Homo, and the symphonic version of the Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez, who, shortly before his death, entrusted his dream to him.
