Whenever I sing Verdi I’m happy and even more so when it comes to performing as Manrico! From February 6th to 29th I’ll be singing in the wonderful production of Il Trovatore which director Alvis Hermanis has set in a picture gallery. It’s a co-production by Teatro alla Scala and Salzburger Festspiele and I’ve already had the honour of singing as Manrico in the 2014 staging in Salzburg.
Then as now, I think this is a truly unique production and I feel honoured to take part in it alongside excellent colleagues and under conductor Maestro Luisotti.
I’m also grateful to La Scala for the opportunity to sing there again this season, just one month after its inauguration with Tosca and in one of my signature roles.
