In the Press

Written by Mark Valencia

Although Luca Pisaroni appears more widely on the stages of opera-houses in Europe and America than in the United Kingdom, in recent years he has become a familiar face at a certain south-coast opera festival. On the day we spoke, the handsome Italian baritone was about to open in his third Glyndebourne production (and his first non-Mozart role there), playing the villainous Argante in Handel’s Rinaldo.

‘Le Nozze di Figaro’ - Baden-Baden Gala and Deutsche Grammophon Release

Luca Pisaroni returns to the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden this month, in the title role of Mozart’s ever-popular masterwork Le Nozze di Figaro. Luca has received outstanding critical acclaim for his signature portrayal of Figaro, most recently at the Bayerische Staatsoper:

“It’s hard to imagine a better singer for the role: Pisaroni shows off a strong voice, impeccable Italian, and wonderful comedic inflections.”

". . . Luca Pisaroni’s Don Fernando perfectly captured the spirit of “enlightened nobility.” 

Stephen Smoilar - Examiner.com

" . . . in a bit of luxury casting, Luca Pisaroni showed up at the end as Don Fernando, who makes everything right."

A "commanding' and 'fierce' portrayal of the Count in 'The Marriage of Figaro' at San Francisco Opera

A

"The most consistent and commanding contribution came from bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni, who sang the role of Figaro here in 2010 and has now returned as the Count. With his fluent, burnished vocal tone and an air of wounded, arrogant self-regard, Pisaroni turned the character into a fierce but suitably human antagonist, as well as bringing out the humor inherent in the role."
