With the "beauty of his voice", his "flexible and radiant" tone and the "liveliness of his performance", Mexican tenor Eleazar Rodríguez has already delighted audiences in numerous major roles in operas from Mozart to Wagner and in several world premieres.
In the 2021/2022 season he added to his repertoire the roles of "Rinuccio" in Puccini's "Gianni Schicchi", "Il Contino Belfiore" in Mozart's "La Finta Giardiniera" and "Ernesto" in Donizetti's "Don Pasquale" at the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, where he has continued to develop artistically as a member of the soloist ensemble since the 2011/2012 season.
In the 2010/2011 season he was a member of the ensemble at the Theater Heidelberg.
Guest engagements have taken him to Opera North, English National Opera, Frankfurt Opera, Graz Opera, Staatstheater Saarbrücken, Theater Luzern, Konzert Theater Bern and the Michigan Opera Theater.
The suppleness of his voice and his temperamental nature make Eleazar Rodríguez a sought-after interpreter of Italian bel canto roles such as Roberto (Roberto Devereux), Edgardo (Lucia di Lammermoor), Tonio (La Fille du Régiment), Lord Percy (Anna Bolena), Nemorino (L'Elisir d'Amore), Tebaldo (I Capuleti e I Montecchi) and Il Conte Almaviva (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) to great success.
He also received great acclaim for his portrayals of Tamino (Die Zauberflöte), Belmonte (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni), Fenton (Falstaff), Cassio (Otello), David (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg), Alfred (Die Fledermaus) and Rodolfo (La Bohème).
Born in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, Eleazar Rodríguez was a recipient of the Plácido Domingo Scholarship given by the Sociedad Internacional de Valores de Arte Mexicano, Mexico's most prestigious Young Artist Program. He is also a prize winner at the Carlo Morelli National Competition in Mexico City.
After graduating from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, he was accepted into San Francisco Opera's prestigious Merola Opera Program in both, the 2009 and 2010 editions.
