Biography



Praised by «Il Sole 24 Ore» for “his beautiful voice, one that can be singled out from a crowded stage: penetrating, rich, polished, powerful and fresh”, Luca Salsi was born in San Secondo Parmense. He graduated as a singer at Parma’s Conservatory “Arrigo Boito” under the guidance of soprano Lucetta Bizza and then went on to master his technique with baritone Carlo Meliciani. He’s been able to rapidly walk the stages of the main opera houses worldwide: New York’s Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Royal Opera House in London, Bayerische Staatsoper, Washington National Opera, Salzburg Festival, Los Angeles Opera, Berlin’s Staatsoper, Liceu de Barcelona, Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Teatro Regio di Parma, Teatro San Carlo di Napoli, Teatro Filarmonico di Verona, Teatro Massimo di Palermo, Festival Puccini at Torre del Lago, Amesterdam’s Concertgebouw, Teatro Regio di Torino and Teatro Real in Madrid. He has worked with important conductors such as Riccardo Muti, James Levine, Daniele Gatti, James Conlon, Placido Domingo, Gustavo Dudamel, Nicola Luisotti, Renato Palumbo, Donato Renzetti, Alberto Zedda; as well as prestigious stage directors such as Robert Carsen, Hugo De Ana, Werner Herzog, Antony Minghella, Franco Zeffirelli and David McVicar. During the 2012/2013 Season he made his debut at the Liceu de Barcelona as Don Carlo in La Forza del Destino, which was followed by several other important Verdi debuts such as Macbeth, Conte di Luna (Il Trovatore), Francesco Foscari (I Due Foscari), and Nabucco at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, conducted by Riccardo Muti. He opened the 2013/2014 Season of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra singing Macbeth, again conducted by Riccardo Muti. Among his engagements in the last seasons: Un Ballo In Maschera in Bologna, Lucia Di Lammermoor and Don Carlo at the MET in New York (where he made the headlines singing Ernani on the same day he sang Lucia di Lammermoor), La Traviata in Turin, London and Munich,Nabucco in Verona, Macbeth and Nabucco in Barcelona, Rigoletto in Madrid, I Due Foscari at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Falstaff in Chicago, Macbeth in Stockholm – under the baton of Riccardo Muti – Nabucco and Rigoletto in Rome, in Ernani and in Il Templario at the Salzburg Festival.

More recently, Luca Salsi has made his role debut as Carlo Gérard in Andrea Chénier (next to Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros) at the Bayerische Staatsoper and as Scarpia in Tosca at the Opera di Roma; he has starred in Rigoletto in Amsterdam (new staging by Damiano Michieletto); has embodied Amonasro in Aida at the Salzburg Festival – with Riccardo Muti on the podium – and he has sung in Andrea Chénier for La Scala’s opening season; has sung in three different titles at the Metropolitan in New York (Il Trovatore, Lucia Di Lamermoor and Luisa Miller), in Don Carlo at the Teatro Comunale di Bologna and in Macbeth under the baton of Riccardo Muti (in Florence and Ravenna).

In the near future, he will play in Macbeth for the Festival Verdi in Parma and in Venice (season-opener with Damiano Michieletto’s new staging and Myung-whun Chung conducting); in Ernani at Teatro alla Scala; La Traviata at the Opéra de Paris; in Nabucco and Andrea Chénier at the Wiener Staatsoper; in Un ballo in maschera at Naples’ Teatro San Carlo.
