MSM is proud of its long association with José Carreras which has encompassed a huge range of high profile projects around the world over many years. This has varied from his appearance in arena opera productions to the recording of the music which was coordinated in the opening ceremony of the Barcelona Olympics and special televised galas from extraordinary settings including the Temple at Anchor Wat in Cambodia. Recent projects include his appearance at the opening ceremony of the Asian Games in Doha, performing the official song with the Lebanese singer Magida El Roumi, to an extensive tour of Japan and the Far East as well as Dubai.
In September 05, MSM presented Rolando Villazón, the young Mexican tenor in his Asian debut as he appeared in a televised Gala specially staged at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ninna-ji Temple in Kyoto. Last year the Italian tenor Marco Berti was the highlight at the same prestigious event. Earlier this year, we presented Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's farewell tour of Japan
MSM continues to work closely on Bryn Terfel's celebrated Faenol Festival among his other exciting concert tours worldwide. The Faenol Festival is an annual event which takes place at the end of August. The line-ups of Angela Gheorghiu, Rolando Villazón, Dame Shirley Bassey and Westlife made last year's festival one of the most exciting to date. This year's festival will feature a renowned Spanish baritone, Carlos Alvarez, the British pop sensation, Girls Aloud and musical stars, Michael Ball and Ruthie Henshall.
Other projects for 2007/2008 include the Asian and Australian tour of José Carreras and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's gala concert in Bangkok as part of the King of Thailand's 80th Birthday Celebrations.
