Luca Pisaroni has the feeling that when you grow up in Busseto, you are much more likely to get involved with opera than if you grow up anywhere else. "You feel Verdi's spirit all over the place!" says the Venezuelan-born bass-baritone. "My family moved back to Italy when I was four. As a kid, I used to go to the opera with my grandfather, and when I was eleven, I already knew I wanted to be an opera singer." Read more

We also hear from bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni about his role debut as Giorgio, the best singing advice he's ever received, and the joys of traveling with his two dogs, Lenny and Tristan.

Luca Pisaroni makes his much anticipated ROF debut this August!

Most American Rossini lovers will remember Luca Pisaroni as the unforgettable Alidoro in the Metropolitain Opera’s “La Cenerentola” a few season’s back. Fortunately it was transmitted in HD, so people all over the US had the chance to experience this exceptional artist. Pisaroni is back at the Met this month for “I Puritani”, and those lucky enough to be in New York during this period, should make sure to attend one of these performances. 

Pisaroni kindly agreed to answer a few questions for Rossini America, taking a break from his hectic schedule to share some of his perspectives with us. We thank him, and we hope you enjoy our “interview”!

"In schwierigen Zeiten müssen wir Künstler noch offener und lauter sein"

Thomas Hampson und Luca Pisaroni sind nicht nur beide angesehene Opernsänger, sondern auch Schwiegervater und -sohn. Nun haben der Bariton (Hampson, 61) und der Bassbariton (Pisaroni, 41) das brandneue Programm "No Tenors Allowed" geschaffen. Die OÖNachrichten begleiteten das Duo zum "Testlauf" nach Istanbul.

OÖNachrichten: Wie haben sich Schwiegersohn und Schwiegervater überhaupt kennengelernt?

Thomas Hampson: Erst waren wir nur Kollegen, dann Freunde, dann Familienmitglieder. Wir haben einander von Beginn an blendend verstanden, tauschen gerne Hilfe und Beobachtungen aus, aber Luca ist nicht mein Student. Luca ist Luca, einer der Besten seiner Generation. Luca Pisaroni: Aber ich wäre nicht, was ich bin, wenn ich Thomas nicht 2002 in Salzburg getroffen hätte. Er ist immer neugierig, ein fantastischer Kollege. Es gibt viele große Sänger, aber Thomas ist noch mehr: ein großer Künstler.
