    It’s a home game for Mauro Peter. The young Swiss tenor, born in 1987, is not only a native of Lucerne: as a member of the Lucerne Boys’ Choir, he also gained his first practical musical experiences here. But he was soon drawn to the wider world. And to the great international stages. Mauro Peter has become a regular guest at the Salzburg Festival, where he has appeared in such Mozart roles such as Ferrando in Così fan tutte and Tamino in The Magic Flute. He had an opportunity to work with the great Nikolaus Harnoncourt and has been a guest artist at La Scala in Milan, the Royal Opera House in London, and the Theater an der Wien. It is especially at Zurich Opera, to whose ensemble he has belonged since 2013, where he has emerged as an audience favorite. Mauro Peter’s special passion, however, is singing lieder. For his Lucerne Festival debut, he will sing the two best-known song cycles that Robert Schumann composed, namely the Eichendorff Lieder and Dichterliebe. Accompanying him will be the celebrated lieder pianist Helmut Deutsch, Peter's former mentor at the Munich Academy of Music, who has since then become his longtime keyboard partner.
