-The acclaimed Italian tenor – a student of Pavarotti– comes fresh from his triumph at the Teatro Real in Madrid with Madama Butterfly and Carmen

November 2017
Andrea Carè, one of the most renowned tenors of his generation, has just triumphed at the Teatro Real in Ma­drid in the role of Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly and as Don José in Carmen. Now he is preparing for his debut at the Valencia Palau de Les Arts, where he will once again take the title role in Verdi´s Don Carlos, an opera which the singer has performed in Canada, France and at the legendary Bolshoi in Moscow. “This is a fascinating character because of his psychological complexity and also because of the vocal and dramatic challenges the role represents. Although very demanding, I think it suits my instrument very well,” the tenor explains. Carè is excited about singing the opera in Spain, the country where the opera is set. This time he will be singing the role of the infante alongside a Rodrigo performed by Plácido Domingo, no less, who Andrea Carè has worked with on various occasions and with whom he recorded Nabucco on DVD (Sony).

Winner of the Spoleto International Opera Com­petition (2005), he perfected his art with the stellar soprano Raina Kabaivanska as well as with the legendary Luciano Pavarotti. In upcoming seasons Carè will make debuts at the New York Metropolitan and the Vienna Opera House, having already performed in some of the most important theatres in the world, including the Royal Opera House in London Covent Garden, the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, the Teatro Regio in Turin, the Ópera de Roma in Rome, the Deutsche Oper in Berlin, the China NCPA in Beijing and La Scala in Milan.

In this Valencian production, Carè wil consolidate his presence on the Spanish opera scene, after his debuts in Barcelona and Madrid.
