“Tall, trim and handsome, with a Hollywood smile, he also emits some of the most beautiful sounds to be heard on the current opera stage … He unites all this with the kind of golden-age singing no longer expected from a full lyric tenor.” Opera News.
Today, December 28th, is the Birthday of one the greatest Tenors of this time, the fabulous Piotr Beczala!
Piotr Beczala has been often compared to Fritz Wunderlich and he is one of the best working Tenors of the world.
Piotr Beczala is, in my opinion, the greatest Lensky of Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin”of this time and also one of the greatest as the Duke in Verdi’s “Rigoletto”, Edgardo in Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lamermoor”, the Prince in Dvorak’s “Rusalka”, Romeo in Gounod’s “Romeo and Juliet”, des Grieux in Massenet’s”Manon”, Werther in Massenet’s “Werther”, Faust in Gounod’s “Faust”, Alfredo in Verdi’s La Traviata, Gustavo/Riccardo in Verdi’s “Un Ballo in Maschera”, Rodolfo in Puccini’s “La Boheme”.

And Recently on February 2015 Piotr Beczala the release of The French Collection, his first solo operatic album with Deutsche Grammophon, featuring best-loved operatic by Berlioz, Gounod, Massenet, Verdi and others. The music lies at the heart of his repertoire.
Piotr Beczala is one of the most important Tenors of world Opera Houses, specially the Metropolitan Opera House in New York in which he gave many marvelous, extraordinary performances along with Anna Netrebko in which recently they performed Tchaikovsky’s “Iolanta” back on February.
Piotr Beczala has a very rich and extense repertoire that marks the Slavic, French, Italian and German Operatic repertoires making him one of the most versatile Tenors of our time.
