In the Press

Luca Pisaroni confesses, semi-solemnly — that as an adolescent in Italy he was unpopular. "I was the only one who liked opera." Raised on a diet of his grandfather's opera collection, he says, he knew early on that was the art form for him.

The bass-baritone who speaks English, French, Spanish and Italian and says "I survive:" in German, will be making his role debut as Mephistopheles in this month's Houston Grand Opera production of Faust.

This month, Luca Pisaroni revisits the role of Méphistophélès in Gounod's Faust at the Wiener Staatsoper.
