Juan Carlos Echeverry – Tenor

Colombian born tenor Juan Carlos Echeverry studied Voice at the Conservatory of Cologne, Germany, where he was honored with a first prize. 

Then he joined Paris Opera young artists program, where he worked for three years under the guidance of Robert Ketelson and Janine Reiss.

 Juan Carlos most acclaimed performances have been the roles of Ernesto (Don Pasquale), Almaviva (The Barber of Sevilla), Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni), Ferrando (Cosi fan tutte) and he has also been greeted as an “ideal” Rinuccio, in a Gianni Schicchi staged by Laurent Pelly. 

While developing his career in Mozart ( he has also performed Tamino and Belmonte) and Belcanto roles, he has also shown his taste and talent for comedy, especially in French “Opéra-Bouffe”, with parts such as Pâris in La Belle Hélène or that of Babylas in Monsieur Choufleuri. Hence he achieved special success interpreting the role of Tony Candolino in the play Master Class-Maria Callas at Théâtre de Paris, for which he was playing opposite actress Marie Laforêt as well as singing Puccini.

More recently, Juan Carlos was Carlos Medina in a caustic version of La Belle de Cadix at Paris Théâtre Comédia as well as on a tour over France and Europe. Soon after, he took again the part of Almaviva in a new production of The Barber of Sevilla as well as that of Don Ottavio, but this time for cinema, in the film by Dutch director Corina Van Eijk.

In 2013, Juan Carlos made a brilliant debut as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor at National Theatre of Cergy Pontoise. He was also very much acclaimed as Nadir in The Pearls Fishers at Lamalou Festival, as well as Frick and Le Brésilien in La Vie Parisienne at Opéra de Nice. In 2014, Juan Carlos interpreted for the first time the role of Camille de Rosillon in The Merry Widow and that of Vincent Etchebar in Le Chanteur de Mexico. 

Moreover, for public and press delight, he took again the role of Nadir in The Pearl Fishers and made his debut at Opera de Massy playing Le-Prince-qui-passe-par-là in Le Voyage dans la Lune, which also took him on a tour in France and Luxemburg.

Upcoming engagements include two new roles: Macduff (Macbeth) and Alfredo (La Traviata) in Holland, Le Chanteur de Mexico and Pâris in Belle Hélène.
