Luca Pisaroni has already had a banner year, including his universally praised debut at Lyric Opera of Chicago as Argante in Handel's Rinaldo and a recital of Schubert and Liszt at Lincoln Center.  This summer, Pisaroni will carry the title role in Santa Fe Opera's world premiere of the new critical edition of Rossini's Maometto II (July 14-August 16). He will also perform in concerts at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival in July.

Rossini's Maometto II, a love story set against a backdrop of the Venetian colony of Negroponte, includes some show-stopping coloratura arias. The opera tells of an impossible love set amid struggles between the worlds of Christianity and Islam. Directed by David Alden, the Santa Fe Opera production of Maometto II (July 14-August 16) will see Pisaroni sing alongside Leah Crocetto (Anna) and Patricia Bardon (Calbo).
