Acclaimed for his ‘extraordinary top notes’ (Guardian), Mexican Jesús León is one of today’s most exciting lyric tenors. Here he presents a selection of his favourite bel canto arias, uniting three giants of 19th-century Italian opera in a dramatic and expressive programme that reveals his sweetness, lightness and flexibility of voice.

Debut recording by acclaimed Mexican tenor Jesús León.
Has performed with Scottish Opera, Glyndebourne Touring Opera, Landestheater Bregenz, Radialsystem Theater, Berlin & Teatro Regio di Parma.

‘‘…his light tenor was mellifluous in its phrasing and even in tone.’ (Seen & Heard International) {Don Giovanni/Garsington Opera}
