Sought-after opera performer coming to Fresno

FRESNO, Calif.

That's where one of the world's most sought-after young tenors will be performing a special show.

Juan Diego Florez, of Peru, is being called the next Pavarotti. The Fresno Grand Opera spent the last four years working to get Florez to the Valley.

This year, he's only performing in three American cities-- New York, D.C., and Fresno.

You can see Juan Diego Florez perform live Monday night at the Saroyan Theatre in Downtown Fresno.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are nearly sold-out.
