Furlanetto, Ferruccio (bass)

Ferruccio Furlanetto (bass)

Italian bass Ferruccio Furlanetto is one of the most sought-after singers in the world, above all as an interpreter of Verdi and Mozart, and of some Russian and French repertoire. Praised for his vast range, thundering vocal power, and excellent acting ability, he has performed at the world’s leading opera houses, including La Scala (Milan), the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (London), Vienna State Opera, the Opera National de Paris, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Teatro Real Madrid, and at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, where he became the first Italian bass to appear in the title role of Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov at that theatre.

Ferruccio Furlanetto has sung many of the great operatic bass parts, including title roles in Boris Godunov, Don Quichotte and Verdi’s Attila, Fiesco (Simon Boccanegra), King Philip (Don Carlo), Padre Guardiano (La Forza Del Destino), and Méphistophélès (Gounod’s Faust). He has collaborated with many leading orchestras and conductors such as Herbert von Karajan, Carlo Maria Giulini, Sir Georg Solti, Leonard Bernstein, Valery Gergiev, Claudio Abbado, Bernard Haitink, Daniel Barenboim, Semyon Bychkov, Riccardo Muti, Mariss Jansons, and Vladimir Jurowski, and has performed at the world’s leading concert halls, in repertory ranging from Verdi’s Requiem to Russian songs. His performances have been broadcast internationally over radio and television. He is an Honorary Ambassador to the United Nations, and Kammersänger and Honorary Member of the Vienna State Opera.
