Born in Lima (Peru), Juan Diego's career includes performances in the top worldwide stages, and he has consolidated as one of the great opera talents by his extraordinary voice. His generosity, charm and passion are qualities that distinguish him in his many activities, in addition to his acclaimed performances and recordings.
Juan Diego Flórez was granted an encore of the aria «Ah! Mes amis » in Donizetti's La fille du régiment, well-known by the nine high C's at Milan's La Scala opera house, and thus breaking the veto of repeating arias since 1933. In 2008, he repeated the same feat at the Metropolitan of New York after several years in which an aria was not encored. Juan Diego Flórez arrives at TIO PEPE Festival with a unique and exclusive staging; he will be accompanied by the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra.
