Ramon Vargas and Ludovic Tezier Sing Duet from Verdi's Don Carlos

Giuseppe Verdi (October 10 1813 - January 27 1901)

Tomorrow marks the great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi's birthday 199 years ago. Given that the 2012-13 opera season falls into his bicentennial year, opera houses around the world are staging his works.  The Canadian Opera Company is putting on Il Trovatore this fall, starring Mexican tenor Ramon Vargas in his first-ever Manrico. Here is Vargas singing another one of his 13 Verdi roles, Don Carlos. This video clip is taken from a 2007 live concert from Baden-Baden.  The Rodrigo is French baritone Ludovic Tezier.
