Petr Nekoranec

Hennig Ruhe – piano

Laureate of prestigious European singing competitions, 23-years old tenor Petr Nekoranec, in an evening of Italian, French and Czech arias, just before Christmas. His most recent achievements include: in August 2015, Petr made it to the semi-finals of Queen Sonja International Singing Competition. In July 2014, he won the International Singing Competition named after the famous Bulgarian-Austrian soprano Ljuba Welitsch, while in September 2014, he took second place at Concours International de Chant in Toulouse, France, which is considered one of the most demanding singing competitions in the world.

In September 2014, Petr also joined ranks of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, and its Opera Studio, and he assumed several roles in the opera house, including the title role of Rossini’s Le comte Ory. Petr Nekoranec cultivates his singing peculiarity as well as his artistic career in a dutiful and purposeful way.

In the beginnings of his career, he invested a lot of efforts into finding the right tutor. In 2011, he found “his” professor Jarmila Chaloupková, at the Conservatory in Pardubice. He also collaborates with the Italian tenor and tutor Antonio Carangelo, who had been taught by the legendary Italian singer Mario del Monaco. They both help him to sustain and perfect his vocal technique and to pick his repertoire carefully; as a lyrical tenor, he focuses on the works of the Italian Bel Canto, mainly the operas of Gioachino Rossini, and Baroque music.

At his Christmas concert, Petr Nekoranec will be accompanied by Hennig Ruhe, main coordinator of the Opera Studio of the Bavarian State Opera.
