Event Details

Baritone Marcelo Guzzo and Pianist Rainer Armbrust will perform art songs, arias, and piano solos by Wagner, Verdi, Donizetti, and Bellini. For the full program, scroll down.

A reception with the artists will follow the concert. 

Marcelo Guzzo has been hailed as one of the “most outstanding singers of his generation.” Critics have described him as “strong and charming,” singing with “idealistic pathos in a smooth baritone” (New York Times). His performances have been noted as “honest, heartfelt and rich in tone” (Chicago Tribune). He has performed the roles of Don Giovanni, Count Almaviva, Marcello, Alfio, Gianni Schicchi in numerous countries, as well as the title role of Emile de Becque in Lincoln Center’s Tony Award-winning South Pacific. He made his Wagner debut as Wolfram at Opera de Colombia, in that company’s first ever Wagner performance, under the baton of Maestro Gustavo Dudamel, with assistant conductor Rainer Armbrust (see below).

     Marcelo Guzzo is scheduled to sing with Andrea Bocelli this summer in Italy, with Plácido Domingo conducting.


Born in Germany, Rainer Armbrust, conductor, vocal coach, and award-winning pianist, has worked for opera houses in Kassel, Mainz, Trier, UIm, Dortmund, Hamburg, and Hanover, and as musical assistant for the Richard Wagner Festival in Bayreuth. Since 2005 he has been assistant conductor at the Israeli Opera, Tel Aviv. He conducted Parsifal at the Teatro San Carlos in Lisbon, and at Opera Naples, Italy. In 2012 he was invited to be a master teacher at the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. In the summer of 2013, he assisted Gustavo Dudamel in preparing Tannhäuser at the Opera de Colombia in Bogotá. In 2014 he was invited to be on the jury of Pianovoce, the international competition for voice and piano duos, at the Moscow State P. I. Tchaikowsky Conservatory.
