Ferruccio Furlanetto performs arias from Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Le nozze di Figaro with the Concertgebouw Orchestra under Mariss Jansons. The famous Italian bass brings illustrious opera figures to life.
Mozart wrote many exquisite operas. Don Giovanni (about the inveterate womaniser) and Le nozze di Figaro (about an odd day of amorous affairs) are among Mozart’s most popular operas. The bass Ferruccio Furlanetto sings Leporello’s bold, hilarious aria ‘Madamina, il catalogo è questo’, one of the sparkling highlights of Don Giovanni. Then he performs a few catchy arias of Figaro and Count Almaviva from Le nozze di Figaro.
Ferruccio Furlanetto made his first solo appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2010. The Italian bass has sung both Don Giovanni and Leporello many times, as well as Figaro in Mozart’s ‘Le nozze’, and countless other great roles in all major opera houses of the world. Furlanetto is also widely in demand as a concert singer. He sang in Mozart’s Coronation Mass under the baton of Herbert von Karajan, in an extraordinary performance at the Vatican in the presence of Pope John Paul II.
