One of the truly outstanding performers in the international music world today, Boris Carmeli studied in Milan and Rome, and was discovered by Tullio Serafin, who first brought him to La Scala in Milan. With a repertoire of over 70 operas and 60 oratorios, his credits are as distinguished as they are lengthy. He has appeared regularly in the major opera houses in the world, such as La Scala in Milan, Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Madrid, Tokyo, Osaka, Rio de Janeiro, and is a sought-after participant for international festivals such as those of Salzburg, Holland, the Berliner Festwochen, Wiener Festwochen, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Sacra Musicale Umbra in Perugia, and Aix-en-Provence, among others. He has performed with virtually all the leading conductors of our day, including Karajan, Giulini, Mehta, Bertini, Bernstein, Ahronovitch, Celibidache, Albrecht, Caridis, Ceccato, Muti, Maazel, Sawallisch, Kubelik, Scherchen, Barbirolli, Menuhin, Dorati, Ansermet, Markevitch, Prêtre, Semkow, Richter, Penderecki, Jochum, Skrowaczewski, Rostropovich, Chailly, Dutoit, Maga, Zagrosek, Zinman, Macal, Frühbeck de Burgos, and Kord. Boris Carmeli frequently appears on Italian television and has starred in many opera films, including Puccini’s Turandot with Birgit Nilsson at La Scala, The Life of Puccini and Rossini’s La scala di Seta. He sang in the European première of Penderecki’s Paradise Lost under the direction of the composer at La Scala in Milan and at the Vatican for the Pope.
