What a season! Rolando's just made his Metropolitan Opera debut, performed with orchestras and opera companies across the U.S., and joined the Young Artist faculty of Bel Canto in Tuscany, a three-week intensive education program designed to provide young singers with a basic understanding of bel canto technique and an immersion in Italian culture.

Rolando was also spotlighted recently on Schmopera, interviewed by Classicalite, HowlRound, and Broadway World Opera, and profiled in Montgomery Magazine, talking about his world premiere production of Andrew Lippa's I Am Anne Hutchinson / I Am Harvey Milk, starring Broadway legend Kristin Chenoweth.

Rolando was exclusively interviewed in the Latin Post, discussing his work with Young Artists of America, singing for the Baltimore Orioles, and how his soul and voice belong to Verdi. He was also featured in The Baltimore Sun after singing "a raucously well-received national anthem" at the Baltimore Orioles playoff opener the same night as his opening of Amleto at Baltimore Concert Opera. 



Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore, Florentine Opera

"Rolando Sanz's Nemorino was built of gorgeous musical deliveries, including an "Una furtiva lagrima" that won the biggest applause of the evening. The tenor used light-footed physical energy and priceless, communicative facial expressions to make the audience care what happened to him.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Alfredo in La traviata, Virginia Opera

"As Alfredo, tenor Rolando Sanz nails the personality of the smitten bon vivant...with a natural, compelling tone."

Boris in Kát'a Kabanová, Spoleto Festival USA

"Rolando Sanz brings a ringing tenor voice to Boris's shallow persona."
Financial Times

Alfredo in La traviata, Florentine Opera

"Rolando Sanz was a warm, tender Alfredo, Violetta's love, singing with color and heartfelt interpretations. He brought musical depth to the role."
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
