Spanish tenor José Carreras will return to Romania for a Christmas concert on December 15, at 20:00 at Sala Palatului in Bucharest. Carreras has had several concerts in Romania before in 2012.
Carreras, now 66 years old, debuted as a tenor in 1970, when he played alongside Monserrat Caballe in Donizetti’s ‘Lucrezia Borgia’. He achieved worldwide fame after playing Pikerton in ‘Madama Butterfly’ at the New York City Opera.
He became known as one of the three tenors, alongside Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti, with whom he held a series of concerts from 1990 until 2003. Carreras fought leukemia and miraculously recovered at the end of the 80s.
Tickets for the concert are priced between RON 150 and RON 650 – for a VIP package, and can be purchased from bilete.ro.
