Paulo Szot has it all. The Brazilian baritone is starring “South Pacific”, the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical that returned to Broadway after half a century. He got a Tony Award for his performance and tons of good press. And, since the last month, he has the main part in Dmitri Shostakovich’s “The Nose” at the Metropolitan (the second Brazilian to sing there, after Bidu Sayão, in the 30s). Szot was also hired by the Met for the future seasons of “Carmen” and “Manon Lescaut”.
Check his great performance singing Ravel’s “Don Quichotte à Dulcinée”, in 2005, and in a scene of “South Pacific”.
