Young Spanish tenor Celso Albelo has won the Giuseppe Lugo Prize in Italy, adding to a series of awards he's received over the last five years. The award will be presented during a gala concert at the Villa Vento in Custoza (Verona) on 2 July 2013 which also features soprano Linda Campanella, mezzo Rossana Rinaldi, baritone Bruno Simone and bass Romano dal Zova.
Born in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, Celso Albela trained at the Conservatorio Superior de Música in his home town with Isabel García Soto and at the Escuela Superior de Canto Reina Sofía in Madrid with Tom Krause and Manuel Cid, continuing later with Carlo Bergonzi at the Busseto Academy.
The Giuseppe Lugo institution collaborates with the Verona Arena Foundation, the Region of Veneto and the Province of Verona to award an internationally acclaimed tenor. This year is the 20th anniversary of the prize. The award is named after the Veronese tenor Giuseppe Lugo (1899-1980) who was well-known internationally in the first half of the twentieth century.
