British-trained Mexican tenor dies, at 59Opera
The Mexican tenor Rafael Rojas died yesterday of an undisclosed cause.
After studying in Glasgow and Manchester, he won a Domingo award in the 1995 Operalia competition and went on to a career that centred mostly on the UK and major European houses.
Opera North has tweeted: ‘We are incredibly sad to learn that tenor Rafael Rojas has passed away. A key member of the Opera North family, Rafael sang many roles here throughout his hugely distinguished career. We are privileged to have known and worked with him.’
