Arturo Chacón-Cruz, who lives in Miami with his wife and son, is a native of Sonora, Mexico, and has established himself in recent years as a leading tenor with exciting debuts and appearances at renowned theaters and concert halls across the globe. Since winning Plácido Domingo’s Operalia Singing Competition in 2005, Arturo’s career has seen a successful steady development and his repertoire spans from lyric roles from Bellini and Donizetti to Puccini and Verdi. Some of his more sought after roles are: Jacopo Foscari, Gabriele Adorno, B.F. Pinkerton, Rodolfo, the Duke of Mantua, Alfredo, Hoffmann, Werther and Romeo to name a few.
Arturo has received many honors and awards for his work, most recently the highly prestigious Alfonso Ortiz Tirado Medal in Mexico, and was invited to perform a solo concert with the Orquesta Filarmonica de Sonora, featuring Opera Arias and Mexican songs, in Alamos, Sonora.
Arturo’s recent role debut as Pollione in Bellini’s Norma (Beirut 2015) was met with critical acclaim, also his debut at the Hamburg State Opera in his debut as Don José in Bizet’s Carmen was completely sold out.
He traveled to Tel Aviv to make his Israel Philharmonic debut, under the baton of Zubin Mehta, as Don José (Carmen) also with sold out performances. He had a last minute jump in for the opening night of the Tales of Hoffmann at the Munich Bavarian State Opera (as Hoffmann).
Arturo shares a long and important relationship with two of the reigning tenors of our day, Plácido Domingo and Ramón Vargas. Since discovering Arturo in 2000, Plácido Domingo has remained a friend and mentor of the younger artist, and the two have shared the operatic stage and concert platform many times. Arturo was awarded the Plácido Domingo Scholarship and Mr. Domingo himself helped launch Arturo’s international career after Arturo’s success in the Operalia Competition. Arturo also enjoys a nurturing friendship with Ramón Vargas who became a mentor, teacher and friend of Arturo after he won the “Vargas Pro Opera” grant in 2005.
