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.

In autumn of 2020, Luca Pisaroni returned to Gran Teatre del Liceu to star as Leporello in Christof Loy’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, conducted by Josep Pons. He collaborated with the newly formed Decameron Opera Coalition, a consortium comprised of nine US-based companies and one creative team for the world premiere of Tales from a Safe Distance – a multi-week virtual release, inspired by Boccaccio’s historical text The Decameron. Mr. Pisaroni starred as the host of the project, providing a musical and dramatic prologue & epilogue for this unique work.

In 2021, Pisaroni will star as Alidoro in Rossini’s La Cenerentola at the Wiener Staatsoper and make his debut as Don Rodrigue in the world premiere of Marc-André Dalbavie’s Le Soulier de satin with Opéra national de Paris. His engagements on the concert stage include Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Orchestra e Coro dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, led by Trevor Pinnock and streamed worldwide on IDAGIO’s Global Concert Hall. Additionally, he performs an all-Mozart program with pianist Sir András Schiff at the Stiftung Mozarteum in Salzburg.
