His vocal repertoire encompasses 140 stage roles, and he has made more than 100 recordings of complete operas. He is known for his collaboration with José Carreras and the late Luciano Pavarotti as the Three Tenors, who performed with enormous success all over the world.

In Berkeley, he will appear with guests Angel Joy Blue, Micäela Oeste and Eugene Kohn, as well as with the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra.
