Opera Star Rolando Villazon Edits YouTube UK: “Opera and Classical Music can shake everybody’s life.”

Today we are happy to welcome Opera tenor Rolando Villazon as Guest Editor of the YouTube UK homepage. Currently part of the judging panel on ITV show “Popstar To Operastar”, the singer has seized the opportunity to share some of his favourite music with the YouTube audience – and, frankly, even if you aren’t a huge fan of his selections (shame on you!), you can’t deny the man’s passion, conviction or enthusiasm.

“I think that Classical Music, Opera, is something that can really shake everybody’s life,” he explains. “Imagine we are bottles full of water. Inside this water there are particles dancing around. Our everyday life makes those particles… settle in the bottom. A great performance – Great Art – will shake the bottles and make all those particles come alive.”

That’s the kind of talk we warm to here at YouTube UK, and to hear more click on the playlist below, which features Rolando talking through his three homepage picks and features more of the videos that caught his eye on the service.



To see more from Rolando Villazon, head to his YouTube channel, VillazonMusic. Hopefully you have enjoyed his day at the controls – some great music, a sprinkling of philosophy and the distinct impression of having encountered someone who is truly in their element. Long may he remain so.

Have fun,

Jamie Dolling, Community Editor, YouTube UK, recently watched “Lemur Tickles”.

agree, a list would have been cool here in the blog post - I think this video and the others he mentions were all on the youtube homepage on teh day he 'took over', but a list here would be nifty.
