"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." (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
Gianluca Zampieri made his debut as Don José in Vienna still during his studies in Vienna 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. From 1996 to 1998, the italian tenor made debuts in many Italian opera houses: He could be heard as Radamès, Andrea Chénier and Cavaradossi amongst others at La Fenice in Venice, Pisa, Teatro di San Carlo Napoli and Genua. His Pollione (Norma) at the Festival in Taormina and Radamès at the San Gimignano Opera Festival were a great success. Since his debut 2006, Gianluca Zampieri regularly performs 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 June 2015 he jumped in with great success as Siegfried (Siegfried) at the Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra. Plans for the season 2015/16 include Tristan at a guest performance of the Tyrolean Festival Erl at the Bejing Music Festival, Steva (Jenufa) at the New National Theatre in Tokyo, Manrico (Il Trovatore) in Prague, Ernani in Vilnius and the title part of Andrea Chénier in Ostrava as well as Siegfried in Siegfried at the Tiroler Festspiele in Erl 2016 and Tichon in a new production of Katja Kabanova at the National Theatre Brno in October 2016.
