José Cura needs no further introduction.  For years, his name has shone in lights on the facades of the greatest theatres and his intense, innovative performances of operatic heroes have won the hearts of audiences.

Following the success of his Stiffelio in 2013 on stage at the Monte-Carlo Opera, it was time to give him carte blanche for a unique evening concert.

As well as depicting the amorous relationship between the poet Pablo Neruda and the love of his life, Matilde Urrutia, José Cura offers a poetic and musical journey through the music of Argentina.

This music is an irresistible mix of rhythms inherited from Afro-descendants and many different stylistic contributions from the continent of Europe.
