About the Artist
Now a leading basso of the Metropolitan Opera, Justino Diaz has sung virtually every basso role in that house, including the title role in Don Giovanni, Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro, Mefistofeles in Faust, Ramfis in A'ida, Rodolfo in La Sonnatnbula, and Escamillo in Carmen. Recently Mr. Diaz performed a rare feat which few bassos in operatic history have done: he sang the three Mephisto roles--Boito's Mefistojele in Barcelona; the Gounod Faust role at the Metropolitan; and the Berlioz Damnation oj Faust role in Pittsburgh, all within a tenmonth period.
In addition to his muchheralded successes on the operatic stages of the world, Mr. Diaz has been guest artist with major orchestras throughout the United States, as well as with many of the great orchestras of Europe, South America, and Canada. He has performed at the Salzburg Festival, the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, and has been guest artist in many television appearances throughout Europe and the United States. He returns regularly to his homeland, Puerto Rico, to sing at the Casals Festivals, and with opera companies in San Juan.
Mr. Diaz is making his Ann Arbor debut with tonight's recital.
