José Cura

José Cura in 2013 José Luis Victor Cura Gómez (born 5 December 1962) is an Argentine operatic tenor, conductor, director, scenographer and photographer known for intense and original interpretations of opera characters, notably ''Otello'' in Verdi’s ''Otello'', ''Samson'' in Saint-Saëns’ ''Samson et Dalila'', ''Canio'' in Ruggero Leoncavallo's ''Pagliacci'', ''Stiffelio'' in Giuseppe Verdi's ''Stiffelio'' and many others.

2007 saw the world-premiere of ''La Commedia è finita''. The show, designed and directed by José Cura – in which he also sang the lead role of Canio – marked the beginning of his career as a director and scenographer. He followed this with his productions of ''Samson et Dalila'' at the Badisches Staatstheater in 2010 (in which he also sang the title role) as well as ''La Rondine'' at the Opéra national de Lorraine (in which he also conducted) and ''Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci'' at the Opéra Royal de Wallonie, both in 2012 – singing the roles of ''Turiddu'' and ''Canio'' in both as well.
