Cortes to Sing in London’s Barbican Centre

Icelandic tenor Gardar Thór Cortes will be the first Icelander to perform solo in the largest performing arts center in Europe, the Barbican Centre in London, on Wednesday next week.

Cortes has been compared by some to Italian legend Luciano Pavarotti, who passed away recently, and been mentioned as his possible predecessor, Morgunbladid reports.

“It is unbelievable that my name is mentioned in the same sentence as Pavarotti. The comparison is not right at all. No one will ever fill his shoes; no one can replace him,” Cortes said.
