Saimir Pirgu

Saimir Pirgu figures among the brightest stars in today’s international operatic firmament and has been celebrated at every major international operatic venue, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Teatro alla Scala, the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Paris Opéra, the Berlin Staatsoper and Deutsche Oper, the Zurich Opera, Barcelona’s Liceu, the San Francisco Opera, and the Salzburg Festival.

A protégé of Luciano Pavarotti, he completed his singing studies with Vito Maria Brunetti in Italy, where, at the mere age of twenty-two, he was chosen by Claudio Abbado to interpret Ferrando in Così fan tutte in Ferrara, the same role with which in 2004 Mr. Pirgu would become the youngest singer ever to debut in a principal role at the Salzburg Festival.
