Alvaro Rodriguez


"This young opera singer proves he can let out all the stops but also shades his voice for sensitive moments. Hopefully, Rodriguez will continue to strive for the pianissimo nuances, as in the famous aria “De este apacible rincon de Madrid.”... Both Sacin and Rodriguez have the confidence to deliver high powered arias that could project to the back row of a big opera house." (Rosalind Lacy, DC Theatre Scene, 5/27/08)
"Alvaro Rodriguez is dashing and fun in his role of Count Almaviva." (Debbie L. Holmer, Advocate News, 04/24/2008)
"Alvaro Rodríguez exuded youthful charm and grace." (Sarah Hoover, The Washington Post, 2/26/07)

This season, Spanish tenor Alvaro Rodriguez has sung the role of Roberto in the Spanish zarzuela Bohemios in a concert presentation in Washington, DC, which also included the third act of Puccini’s La boheme. He recently performed in the In Series Exploring Zarzuela! presentation at George Mason University.

In 2008 Alvaro sang the role of Ramiro with Opera Theater of Northern Virginia. In September he performed two recitals in his native Mallorca; one, a benefit concert in Palma, and the other, an eBay sponsored event in Porto Petro. In the summer of 2008 he sang Edmondo in Manon Lescaut and covered Des Grieux for Utah Festival Opera in Logan, UT. At the same time he debuted in a musical, playing the obnoxious George Read in 1776. Earlier in 2008, he sang Almaviva in Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia with Opera Fresca in Mendocino, CA and Javier in M. Torroba's Luisa Fernanda with Zarzuela Di Si in Washington, DC.

Additional recent operatic appearances include the roles of Rodolfo in La boheme with Amici Opera, Leandro in La tabernera del puerto with Zarzuela Di Si, Roberto in Bohemios with Opera Theater of Northern Virginia/Teatro de La Luna, Tebaldo in I Capuleti e i Montecchi with Chamber Opera of Washington and Paolino in Il matrimonio Segreto with Maryland Opera Studio.
