On February 16, 19 & 22, Luca Pisaroni sings Alidoro in Rossini’s La cenerentola at the Wiener Staatsoper. The sparkling cast also features Isabel Leonard as Angelina, Maxim Mironov as Don Ramiro, Alessio Arduini as Don Magnifico, and Alessio Arduini as Dandini. Jean-Christophe Spinosi leads the orchestra for all performances, which highlight a fresh, modern staging by Sven-Eric Bechtolf. Tune in on February 22 for an online stream of the performance via Staatsoper Live.

Metropolitan Opera audience-goers will remember Mr. Pisaroni’s engaging portrayal of the role during the 2013-14 season:

“Luca Pisaroni, the Alidoro, cuts an elegant figure and delivers his one big aria handsomely.” (Bachtrack)

“… the Venezuelan bass Luca Pisaroni is stoically otherworldly as Alidoro.” (The Huffington Post)
