By Sebastian Spreng Since his 2001 professional debut, Luca Pisaroni has made headlines in the musical press around the world. The Italian opera singer won the “Newcomer of the Season” medal of the Vienna State Opera and kicked off a flourishing international career. Regarded as one of the best bass-baritones of our time, he made his mark in Mozart and Händel. His Figaro, especially, has created a sensation from Paris and Vienna to the Metropolitan Opera and Santa Fe, and was particularly noted in Mozart’s hometown at the venerable Salzburg Festival.
On September 9th, 2015, Luca Pisaroni graced the stage of Ganz Hall at the Chicago College of Performing Arts. His recital was presented as part of the Chicago Collaborative Arts Institute's Collaborative Work Festival.
