When he returned to Spain, he made his debut at the Gran Teatro Liceo theatre in Barcelona.

His repertoire runs to over 30 operas and he has performed at theatres across the five continents, sharing the stage with Montserrat Caballé, José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. His home city has paid him tribute on several occasions.
