About The Artist

Hailing from Verdi’s hometown of Busseto (Parma), Luca Pisaroni regularly performs with leading opera companies in Europe and North America in addition to performing concerts at festivals such as Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under conductor James Levine. Winner of the Eberhard Wächter Medal as “newcomer of the season” by the Vienna State Opera, Pisaroni has performed operatic roles at the Salzburg Festival, Aix-en-Provence Festival, Opera Bastille and the Metropolitian Opera.

“The Italian bass is young, tall, and handsome . . . His voice is light, but his singing was lithe, witty, responsive, and imaginative.”
- The Boston Globe
