Think yourself blessed. With Rolls Royce vocals and turbo-charged lungs, a star is among us. Possessed with ‘the kind of voice you want to hang medals on’ (Opera News), Piotr Beczala is a tenor without compare, the Pavarotti of the here and now.

Need proof? We’ve got it – in one blinding, blistering, baleful and brilliant aria after another from titans of the opera courtesy of ‘arguably the hottest lyric tenor on the international circuit’ (Sunday Times).

For the incurable romantics among you, there’s the muscular melancholy of Verdi’s ‘Quando le sere al placido’ (Luisa Miller), aching longing of Puccini’s ‘Recondita armonia’ (Tosca) and heart-stopping passion of ‘La fleur que tu m’avais jetée’ from Bizet’s Carmen.

Tragedy more your style? Indulge with ‘Szumia jodły’ from Beczala’s Polish compatriot Stanisław Moniuszko’s Halka. Or perhaps you prefer the firing on all cylinders passion? Puccini’s ‘Nessun Dorma’ from Turandot should do the trick.

But here’s a warning: handkerchiefs at the ready for Giordano’s ‘Come un bel dì di maggio’ (Andrea Chenier) and get ready to scream, shout and pump the air for the mighty anthem that is Verdi’s ‘Celeste Aida’ (Aida).
