Jose Carreras Biography - A Life in Music
Born in Barcelona in 1946, this aspiring singer began serenading his family from a young age and soon began to learn arias from his favourite films, like The Great Caruso. After training for just two years, he made his debut on Spanish radio with Verdi's 'La donna e mobile', followed by his operatic debut at the age of 12 in El retablo de Maese Pedro by Manuel de Falla. As he got a little older he began working with Juan Ruax, who would subsequently introduce him to the influential Montserrat Cabelle. A performance alongside the celebrated soprano caught the attention of the opera world and promptly landed the singer a management deal.
He would make his American debut with the New York City Opera in Puccini's Madam Butterfly in 1972, and impressed enough to land 24 different roles across Europe and the US by the time he was 28. However, in 1987 he had a major setback - he was diagnosed with acute leukaemia and given a mere 10% chance of survival. Intensive treatment saw him overcome the odds, and he then struck up a friendship and prosperous working relationship with Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. The trio's first performance together was in aid of Carreras' leukaemia foundation, and reportedly drew in an astonishing 1.3 billion viewers. The LP released off the back of the concert went on to become the best-selling classical record in history, which is a title it retains to this day. Carreras' Royal Albert Hall concert takes a look back at his career, with the star sharing the music that means the most to him. Get your Jose Carreras tickets now on StubHub to witness the magic.
