Emerging Stars Winner: Arturo Chacón-Cruz
Arturo Chacón-Cruz is this year's winner of the Emerging Stars competition at the San Francisco Opera. I first saw him in San Francisco as the Duke in Rigoletto in 2012. He starred this past season as Rodolfo in Puccini's La Boheme. He is another Mexican tenor. We seem to have a lot of them these days. Perhaps Placido finds them. Yes, I see he won Operalia.
Who doesn't love a good Rodolfo? To quote myself I said, "...my favorite was Arturo Chacón-Cruz as Rodolfo who has a gorgeous, bright sound." Here he is as Rodolfo.
