Zoltán Megyesi

Lyric tenor
"Messenger between the gods of heaven and the earthly Alba was pastor Aceste sang by tenor Zoltán Megyesi smooth and butter soft."

His Don Ottavio had a bursting success in the New York performace of Don Giovanni. His exceptional bel canto makes him a uniquely versatile perfomer of the greatest roles of the baroque and the romatic repertoire alike.
