This spring, Luca Pisaroni makes his highly anticipated debut at Canadian Opera Company, in the title role of Rossini’s Maometto II. Mr. Pisaroni received widespread critical acclaim for his previous performances in this David Alden-directed production, at Santa Fe Opera (2012).

Performances take place April 29 and May 1, 3, 5, 7, 11 & 14, and feature two members of the original cast from Santa Fe – soprano Leah Crocetto reprises her role as Anna and tenor Bruce Sledge sings Erisso, with mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong joining to sing Calbo. Harry Bicket leads the COC Orchestra for this not-to-be-missed engagement. Enjoy a video preview featuring an interview with Mr. Pisaroni, detailing the highlights of the production.
