A prominent bass-baritone makes his mark at the Met as Don Juan’s wingman.  By David Shengold

Luca Pisaroni, a dashing bass-baritone born in Venezuela and raised in Italy, has become one of the Metropolitan Opera’s most dependably exciting performers. With a dark, agile voice, sterling musicianship and curly-haired good looks, Pisaroni, still in his thirties, may someday take on opera’s No. 1 Don Juan himself. For now, he revels in the part of Leporello, the titular rake’s all-important wingman, a role Pisaroni plays in a new Met Don Giovanni helmed by renowned theatrical director Michael Grandage (Frost/Nixon, Red).
