February 2013 – Janacek is an author that initially was not in the plans of the Spanish baritone Enric Martínez-Castignani, but Robert Carsen and the good connection between both, have been the responsible to make him be present. After his first collaboration with his brilliant performance as Dr. Kolenaty in Vec Makropulos, praised by the Frankfurter Allgemeine, Carsen has trusted him again. In February and March this year he returns to the Opéra du Rhin-Strasbourg to perform "The Cunning Little Vixen", in co-production with Opéra de Lille. The cast also features such notable artists as Scott Hendricks or Rosemary Joshua, and musical direction is in charge of Friedemann Layer.

Complete artist who seduces stage directors

Robert Carsen is currently the most requested stage director of opera world. He just premiered at Teatro la Scala his production of Falstaff, opening the Verdi's year, under an important media pressure because since the time of Strehler, it has been not recovered any different production of this title. The thoroughness of the Canadian stage director with singers is important, but the high interpretive quality both musical and in acting of Enric Mtz-Castignani, have made their relationship to continue until at least the end of the year, as in September-October they collaborate again in "From the House of Death".

With these productions of 2013, there will be 4 times that Mtz-Castignani will have worked with Carsen, including baritone's debut at Teatro La Fenice-Venice, where in March he will perform again Vec Makropulos at the Italian premiere.
