Zach Borichevsky and Javier Arrey perform in Madama Butterfly in Chile
Tenor Zach Borichevsky and baritone Javier Arrey both return to the Teatro Municipal Santiago de Chile as Pinkerton and Sharpless respectively, in performances of Madama Butterfly this week. Directed by Hugo de Ana and conducted by the theatre’s Chief Conductor Konstantin Chudovsky, performances run from 22 June to 4 July.
Making his first appearances in the role of Pinkerton, Zach has enjoyed an exciting season of debuts including his role debuts as Lensky (Eugene Onegin) with Arizona Opera and Edgardo (Lucia di Lammermoor) with Opera Carolina, as well as his UK operatic debut as Alfredo (La traviata) with Glyndebourne Touring Opera. Zach will round off his season at Aspen Music Festival performing Janáček’s The Diary of One Who Disappeared.
This season Javier has already performed as Marcello (La bohème) at Washington National Opera, and features as Lescaut on the recent recording of Manon Lescaut for Decca Classics under Plácido Domingo. He preceded his appearances in Madama Butterfly with concert performances of Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen at the Teatro Municipal under fellow Chilean Maximiano Valdés. Next season, Javier will appear as Alphonse (La favorite) with Washington Concert Opera under Antony Walker and will join Charlotte Symphony for performances of Orff’s Carmina Burana under Christopher Warren-Green.
