The most difficult tenor arias for a girl like me ...

If I say that the most difficult arias are for soprano is that, until today, I had not heard the arias for tenors; I am divided since the complexity for these arias impresses me and scares me a little (for almost damaging my voice haha) but really beautiful, hard, of high difficulty and emotion for the theme of the opera for which they were written ...

1. Ah! mes amis, La fille du régiment, Gaetano Donizetti.

Really surprising and fast! It gives me to think that the interpreter does not have time to improvise, to think, to rest a bit the voice because immediately a rise that leaves me silent and thoughtful.

At the beginning the movement of notes very quickly, then the beginning of the lyrics as fast as the notes (honestly I do not care about the language, in this case French, although that adds a higher degree of difficulty). The truth, it should require months of preparation this aria because the interpreter will not want considerable damage to his throat haha.

2. Vesti la Giubba, Pagliacci, Ruggero Leoncavallo.

Contrary to the previous one, the rhythm is much slower so that the sad notes of the interpretation of the man are noticed; The deepest sadness of a loving disappointment is reflected in a slow, sweet, soft, sad interpretation, with demanding notes but that the singer can resist until he feels like the character in question.

The character tries to laugh for what he should do and cry for what is happening to them (an infidelity), slow movements that try to accompany the situation, the voice of the interpreter is demanded but without physically altering it. The difficulty in this aria is noted: the singer must interpret it as if it were his situation with a voice and / or notes full of anger, hatred and much sadness.

Believe me, are not the only ones and I'm going for more ...


  1. Ambas son difíciles, desde luego, "Ah, mes ami," tiene esos agudos que además requieren agilidad. Por otro lado Recitar... Vesti la giubba" en efecto requiere mucha interpretación. Una que Kraus consideraba como la más difícil técnicamente es "Ella mi fu rapita.... Parmi veder le lacrime" de Rigoletto. Sin embargo la dificultad también es relativa al tipo de tenor que la cante.
