We Call Him The "Ace of Bass" For A Reason

Ferruccio "Ace of Bass" Furlanetto, who is currently in town rehearsing the title role of Don Quixote, has been nominated for the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award he tells me.

The most-coveted theatre award in London has a category for “Most Outstanding Achievement in Opera” and Mr. Furlanetto has been nominated for his portrayal of King Philip in Don Carlo. Ferruccio performed King Philip in San Diego Opera’s 2004 production of Don Carlo to both critical and popular acclaim.

Don Quixote, which features Ferruccio Furlanetto and Denyce Graves opens at San Diego Opera on Saturday, February 14, 2009 for four performances only.

Go Ferruccio!
