About the bass-baritone and his career and life so far ...

Italian bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni has established himself as one of the most charismatic and versatile singers performing today. Since his debut at age 26 with the Vienna Philharmonic at the Salzburg Festival, led by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Pisaroni has continued to bring his compelling artistry to the world’s leading opera houses, concert halls, and festivals.

Luca Pisaroni begins the 2019/20 season with a return to the Wiener Staatsoper to star as the Four Villains in Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann. He then sings the title role of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in a concert staging with the Sinfonieorchester Basel at the George Enescu Festival. Pisaroni returns to the Metropolitan Opera for two productions this season: Le Nozze di Figaro (Figaro) and Così fan tutte (Guglielmo), marking the first revival of Phelim McDermott’s popular staging inspired by Coney Island. After a successful tour with Il Pomo d’Oro last season, Pisaroni reunites with the ensemble for his role debut as Zoroastro in Handel’s Orlando on tour in Europe. He closes out the season starring in multiple productions of Don Giovanni, beginning at the Palais Garnier as the title role with the Opéra National de Paris, singing Leporello at the Bayerische Staatsoper, and concluding with the title role at Opernhaus Zürich.

Pisaroni’s 2019/20 concert appearances include Mozart’s Requiem with the Orchester Wiener Akademie, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with NHK Symphony Orchestra and a concert with I Virtuosi del Teatro alla Scala at Zaryadye Hall in Moscow. In recital, Luca will appear at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence, at The Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, and at UBC Opera in Vancouver for their “Singer Behind the Song” series. Pisaroni reunites with baritone Thomas Hampson for their acclaimed “No Tenors Allowed” concert series in Provo, Utah, and then at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.
