This December, Luca Pisaroni makes his debut with Berlin's Staatsoper Unter den Linden in one of his signature roles, Leporello in Mozart's Don Giovanni. His recent portrayal at The Metropolitan Opera garnered acclaim from audiences and critics alike: “ . . . this performance was, overall, the best sung . . . with the Leporello of the vibrant bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni. He conveys the character’s bungling awkwardness. Yet Mr. Pisaroni’s natural charm comes through, lending Leporello a touch of swagger.” (New York Times)

“The sold-out, season-opening recital of the Harris Theater's "Beyond the Aria" series, Monday night on the Pritzker Pavilion stage at Millennium Park, brought a number of surprises beyond the expected fine singing of soprano Amanda Majeski, bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni and Ryan Opera Center tenor Jonathan Johnson, in the cabaret-style setting . . .
Who knew that Pisaroni (who portrays Count Almaviva opposite Majeski's Countess in "Figaro") had a passionate flair for such classic American songs as Cole Porter's "Night and Day" and Gershwin's "Embraceable You"? His deep, caressing tone, idiomatic sense of style and deep feeling for the texts and music lifted four Italian songs by Tosti and Donaudy into the realm of high vocal art.”
