Gianluca Buratto


A native of Lombardy, the bass Gianluca Buratto initially studied clarinet and saxophone before he decided to commence his vocal training with Margaret Hayward at the Verdi Conservatory in Milan. As an opera singer, he has performed under Riccardo Muti at La Scala in Milan and at the Salzburg Festival. He has taken part in productions of Puccini’s La bohème in Valencia under Riccardo Chailly, Mozart’s Figaro with Christophe Rousset conducting, and Verdi’s Rigoletto led by Fabio Luisi. It was as a Handel performer that Buratto appeared at the Theater an der Wien, and he has sung Monteverdi during a tour of the United States under the baton of Sir John Eliot Gardiner. On the concert stage Gianluca Buratto has performed in Bach’s B minor Mass with Jordi Savall, the St. John Passion with Eduardo López-Banzo, and Mozart’s La Betulia liberata with Riccardo Muti.
