-Or from Aida to Butterfly. The Italian tenor returns to Stockholm and makes his debut in Vienna
The Italian tenor Andrea Carè began his artistic 2018/19 season with a debut in Helsinki (Finland). He took the role of Cavaradossi in Tosca (Puccini) at the Finnish National Opera in the capital, with performances continuing until the 18th October. Carè made his first appearance in Finland almost a decade ago at the Savolinna Festival. Immediately after his run with Tosca he will travel to the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm (Sweden) to sing the role of Radames in Aida (Verdi) from the 27th October, with performances taking place on the 27th and 31st October and the 6th, 10th, 13th, 16th, 19th, 22nd and 26th November. The tenor made his debut in the staged opera at the Théâtre Royale de La Monnaie/De Munt in Brussels (Belgium) in 2017 and one year earlier, in concert format, alongside the Boston Symphony, at the Tanglewood Festival (Boston, USA).
His return to Stockholm this season also includes, in February and March 2019, various performances of Rodolfo in La Bohème (Puccini).
Immediately after his return to Sweden with Aida, Andrea Carè will have one of his dreams come true: he will make his debut at the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna, Austria), one of the international capitals of opera. He will take the role of Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly (Puccini) on the 1st, 3rd and 7th December. He has known the role intimately since he made his debut as Pinkerton in the 2010 Savonlinna Opera Festival in Finland and he has also performed it at the Teatro Regio in Turin (Italy), the Canadian Opera Company (Toronto, Canada) and the Teatro Real de Madrid (Spain).
Among other upcoming engagements he will be returning to Brussels with La Gioconda (30th January and 3rd, 6th, 10th, February), and will be performing the same opera in his return to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain).
