Bajazet is a playlist of wonderful arias

Acclaimed Italian opera singer, Gianluca Margheri, to perform in Irish National Opera’s production of Vivaldi’s Bajazet

When Gianluca Margheri steps onto the stage of the Town Hall Theatre to perform the title role in Vivaldi’s opera Bajazet, it will be a double debut for the acclaimed opera singer.

Irish National Opera’s production of Bajazet will mark the first time Gianluca has played one of the key roles for bass baritone, while his Town Hall Theatre performance on Tuesday January 25 will mark his debut in Galway city.

“It’s exciting for me to be able to perform this role,” Gianluca tells me during our Tuesday morning interview. “I had studied the role before as it’s one of the most important leads for bass baritone. It’s a dream come true as I’ve wanted to sing it since I first heard a recording of it with the incredible Ildebrando D'Arcangelo, who is one of my teachers.”

Gianluca is also looking forward to coming to Galway. “It will be the first time I have sang in Ireland, my first visit to the country, and that makes it even more exciting and interesting, and I’ve heard Galway is one of the most beautiful cities in Ireland.”
