This time we have the pleasure of talking with baritone Alfredo Garcia, a singer so tied to the musical figure of Don Quixote that at times we really get confused who is who. Despite having started his academic musical training late, aged 14, he has conquered several prestigious concert halls such as the Wiener Kammeroper, Royal Theater, Lincoln Center or the National Auditorium in Madrid.
