Luca Pisaroni impresses at Glyndebourne

Tuesday 5th July 2011

This summer Bass-Baritone Luca Pisaroni has returned to Glyndebourne Festival in their new production of Handel’s Rinaldo. The production, which opened on Saturday, has received fantastic reviews, but it is Luca’s impressive singing which has really wowed critics and audiences alike:


“Smashing singing from Luca Pisaroni as Argante (what a commanding entrance aria)”.

Daily Telegraph:

“Luca Pisaroni was at the top of his game as the treacherous Argante”.

Financial Times:

“The best of the singers is the bass, Luca Pisaroni, as Argante”.

The Arts Desk:

“Singing everyone else into the shadows in Act I, Pisaroni‚Äôs easy stage presence and sooty tones recalled his previous Glyndebourne star turn as Leporello”.

Music OMH:

“Luca Pisaroni stole the show with his Argante, his first aria a model of Handelian bass style.”

Rinaldo runs at Glyndebourne until 22nd August and the cast will appear at the BBC Proms on August 25th.
