About

 

Legendary baritone Thomas Hampson and his son-in-law, acclaimed bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni, bring their family ties to the stage in “No Tenors Allowed,” a gala concert event.

This spectacular programme features highlights of the operatic repertoire, greatest hits from Broadway musicals, and timeless classical and popular songs. Since 2010 Hampson and Pisaroni have brought their signature artistry – and senses of humor – to enthusiastic audiences across the globe.

They perform a selection of arias and duets including “Cheti, cheti immantinente” (Don Pasquale) and “Eh via buffone” (Don Giovanni), as well as classics like “Some Enchanted Evening” from Rodgers and Hammerstein and Cole Porter’s “Night and Day.” High c’s are left at the door for this not-to-be-missed showcase of the duo’s rich, sonorous voices.

Luca Pisaroni

Italian bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni has established himself as one of the most charismatic and versatile singers performing today. Since his debut at age 26 with the Vienna Philharmonic at the Salzburg Festival, led by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Pisaroni has continued to bring his compelling artistry to the world’s leading opera houses, concert halls, and festivals.

Luca Pisaroni begins the 2019/20 season with a return to the Wiener Staatsoper to star as the Four Villains in Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann. He then sings the title role of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in a concert staging with the Sinfonieorchester Basel at the George Enescu Festival and Pizarro in Beethoven’s Fidelio with the Orchestre Métropolitain under Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Pisaroni returns to the Metropolitan Opera for two productions this season: Le Nozze di Figaro (Figaro) and Così fan tutte (Guglielmo), marking the first revival of Phelim McDermott’s popular staging inspired by Coney Island. He closes out the season starring in multiple productions of Don Giovanni, beginning at the Palais Garnier as the title role with the Opéra National de Paris, singing Leporello at the Bayerische Staatsoper, and concluding with the title role at Opernhaus Zürich.

Pisaroni’s 2019/20 concert appearances include Mozart’s Requiem with the Orchester Wiener Akademie, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with NHK Symphony Orchestra and a concert with I Virtuosi del Teatro alla Scala at Zaryadye Hall in Moscow. In recital, Luca will appear at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence, at The Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, and at UBC Opera in Vancouver for their “Singer Behind the Song” series. Pisaroni reunites with baritone Thomas Hampson for their acclaimed “No Tenors Allowed” concert series in Provo, Utah, and then at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.

What happened in the first notes, already exceeded all expectations. Electrified by the charisma of both singers, a resonating enthusiasm was felt by the audience in the hall.

Wolfsburger Allgemeine

Laugh and cry with Pisaroni and Hampson ... Hampson and his stage skills, Pisaroni with his playful, boyish irony. With this strong program the two vocal top guns proved once again that opera is about life, about laughing and crying, about power and love.

Place de l'Opera

More than just a concert of two great performers, I loved the very special atmosphere generated by the admiring affection that unites these two men and their natural talents.

Opera Minora

Artistically they shine through a sequence of works that punctuate the evening, sometimes arias, sometimes duets ... Great art.
