On May 20 th Rudi Fernandez Cardenas becomes French!

I have known Rudi Fernandez Cardenas for over ten years and met him while he was still studying at Conservatoire National de Musique, in La Villette. How he was born in Iquitos, Peru, in a city that can only be reached by boat or plane because it is in the middle of the Amazone… How he was a soprano at 10 and subsequently selected to study in Lima at the Conservatory and how he won a scholarship to Paris is all fascinating to me.

In Le Cid, in Lima

In Otello

He has now started his professional life with a part in Otello by Verdi and has mastered not only the French language (beautifully) but a brand new French citizenship on May 20 th. Bravo Rudi !
