Gianluca Zampieri

"The 3rd act is the climax of the evening: Gianluca Zampieri raves his feverous visions crawling at the front of the stage and shows no signs of fatigue in his voice or acting."

Gianluca Zampieri made his debut as Don José in Vienna during his studies and won the singing competition Mattia Battistini in Rieti as well as the price of the masterclass from Franco Corelli at the Hochschule Wien in the same year. The Italian tenor made several debuts at Italian opera houses. So, he was Radames, Andrea Chénier and Cavaradossi amongst others at Teatro La Fenice in Venice, at Teatro di San Carlo Napoli, in Pisa and Genua. His Pollione (Norma) at the Festival in Taormina and Radames at the San Gimignano Opera Festival were great successes. Since his debut 2006, Gianluca Zampieri regularly performs as well at the Tiroler Festspiele as Tristan, Siegfried and Tannhäuser.

His repertoire includes all Verdi- and Puccini roles and his characteristic timbre opened him many guest engagements all over Europe. He is a regular guest at the State Opera Prague, in Ostrava, Cordoba and at the Lithuanian National Opera as Cavaradossi (Tosca), Radamés (Aida), Hagenbach (La Wally), Boris (Katja Kabanova), Manrico (Il Trovatore), Laca (Jenufa), Agrippa von Nettelsheim/Mephisto (Der feuerige Engel) und Albert (Vec Makropulos) as well as in the title parts of Andrea Chénier, Ernani und Otello. In 2012, he made a highly acclaimed debut as Peter Grimes in Trier and in spring 2013 he sang very sucessfully the tenor part in Verdi’s Messa da Requiem in Warsaw under the baton of Krzysztof Penderecki.

In 2015/16 he could be seen as Tristan in a guest performance of the Tiroler Festspiele Erl at the Bejing Music Festival, Steva (Jenufa) at the New National Theatre in Tokyo, Manrico in Prague, Ernani in Vilnius and as Andrea Chénier in Ostrava. He also was Siegfried (Siegfried) at the Tiroler Festspiele in Erl 2016 and Tichon in a new production of Katja Kabanova at the National Theatre Brno. In summer 2017, he again will return to Erl to sing Siegfried (Siegfried).
