Hailed as one of the leading exponents of the bel canto and lyric styles among today’s singers, Jorge Pita Carreras has performed the lyric tenor repertoire to great praise in opera houses throughout the world.
Mr. Pita’s appearances have taken him to the leading opera houses in Hamburg, Stuttgart, Linz, Amsterdam, London, Covent Garden, Oslo, Toulouse, Kiel, Basel, Nantes, Marseille, Liverpool, Glasgow, Dublin, Los Angeles, Leeds, Madrid, Barcelona, Toledo, Paris, Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Salzburg, Berlin, Edinburgh, Boston, Dallas, Denver, New York, among others.
At age of 22, Mr. Pita became the youngest tenor to debut at the Vienna Staatsoper, singing Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly. Following this successful debut, he appeared in leading tenor roles in Macbeth, La Traviata, Falstaff, Rigoletto, Lucia di Lammermoor, and as the Italian Tenor in Der Rosenkavalier.
I have been teaching other singers as my own career progressed singing major roles through out the world in major opera houses. Many of my students are professional singers with major careers as well as beginners who show promise in the art of singing.
Hello All -
Jorge Pita Carreras is the real thing. I currently have a Bachelor's and Master's of Music in Vocal Performance and not once, in any of my educational training, have I received the true "bel canto" approach that Jorge teaches! It boggles my mind how I could even phonate before. Having sung with the greatest singers and conductors of our generation, Jorge brings a unique wealth of worldwide experience and knowledge. He fully understands the "bel canto" technique and it's application to the main stage. His pursuit of vocal freedom and it's application to the real world is riveting and invigorating. Anyone seeking a true technician with exquisite ears and musical taste must contact Jorge. He's a mentor for life!
Jorge is a wonderful instructor who truly cares about his students. He takes his time to ensure your progress and understanding of the material. His technique and teachings of technique are flawless, hands down. I'm so glad I came to meet and learn from him!+ Read More
I have observed Jorge in detail as he works with his students teaching the correct Italianate method and how to correctly sing without damaging the voice.
