Marco was such a fantastic addition to my mom's birthday party. He was organized and professional prior to the event, came early with his pianist to check out the room and the piano, and did an excellent job talking about what he was going to sing. We had absolutely no complaints and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Marco, it was a very special evening!

True Interpretation of the repertoire
A native of Tijuana, Mexico, obtained his B.A. Degree from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. He has performed in numerous recitals and concerts throughout Mexico, the United States and Canada. Labastida has also participated in multiple operas, such as: La Boheme, Madame Butterfly, The Barber of Seville, Romeo and Juliet, Elixir of Love, La Canterina with the Tijuana Opera; and the world premier opera Serafina and Arcangela by Enrique Gonzalez Medina in Los Angeles. He has been invited to be part of the Oratorio, Handel's Messiah Coronation Mass by Mozart, Misa Criolla, Navidad Nuestra by Ariel Ramirez and Lloyd Webber's Requiem, and Zarzuela which includes the premier of Luisa Fernanda in Southern California, conducted by the composer's son Federico Moreno-Torroba Jr.
In the summer of 2007, Labastida performed in "Opera en la Calle" with the Tijuana Opera, and in an Argentinian-Mexican production of Rossini's The Barber of Seville at the Tijuana Cultural Center. In 2006, Tybalt marks his debut with Center Stage Opera. In 2008, Labastida sang Normano in Lucia di Lammermoor in co-production with the Tijuana Opera and the Palace of Fine Arts of Mexico City.
His repertoire also includes popular Mexican music, as well as Latin American, French, German and Italian songs. In March of 2009, Labastida performed a full program of Agustin Lara's songs (the composer of Granada) with the Orchestra of Baja California (OBC), and he received an award from the Agustin Lara Foundation in Los Angeles, for his performances promoting Lara's music.
Mr. Labastida has been recognized in the Hall of Fame and Stars in Tijuana. He continues performing throughout México and in the USA as well as teaching voice privately. Mr. Labastida worked for 10 years at XLNC1 104.9 FM radio station in Chula Vista as music programmer and counselor.
