Rubio has performed with Cincinnati Opera, Portland Opera, Nashville Opera, Alamo City Opera, Asheville Lyric Opera, Tacoma Opera, Vashon Opera, Juneau Lyric Opera and Bellevue City Opera in roles that include the title role in Don Giovanni, Figaro in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Escamillo in Carmen, Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor, Marcello and Schaunard in La Bohème, Guglielmo in Così fan Tutte, Tarquinius in The Rape of Lucretia, Tonio in I Pagliacci, and Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus. Building musical bridges, he has performed extensively in China. Rubio takes pride in his involvement in contemporary operas that have produced original recordings. He is featured in two of Philip Glass's operas, Orpheé and Galileo Galilei, and can be heard on Albany Records' world premiere recording of Evan Mack's Angel of the Amazon.
