Jose Carreras - an iconic singer from Catalonia
While growing up in Barcelona, Jose Carreras began his career by performing in the puppet opera El retablo de Maese Pedro at the impressive age of 11. In the early 1970s, he performed his first tenor role in the show Norma, which led to his career rapidly progressing for the next two decades. During the late 1980s, Carreras made the decision to experiment outside of the opera world and dabble with other types of performances, such as musicals, with some examples being South Pacific and West Side Story. In addition to his solo performances and roles in famous operas, he has become known for being an original member of the Three Tenors, a popular music group that specialised in opera. The Three Tenors rapidly grew in popularity, with it being estimated that over 1 billion people watched one of their live concerts on television in 1994. This consequently led to the expansion of Carreras’ fame, inspiring even more music lovers to attend his shows.

Jose Carreras combines philanthropy and music
During the 1980s, it was found that Carreras suffered from leukaemia, resulting in him putting his work on hold and receiving medical treatment. However, this did not stop him from pursuing his career, and he once again appeared on stage in 1988 after he made a full recovery. He helped host several charity concerts in the coming years, with the profits being donated to organisations helping to find a cure for cancer. Additionally, he founded the José Carreras International Leukaemia Foundation in Barcelona, leading to fans praising him for not just his lyrical and rich voice, but also for his impressive humanitarian and philanthropic work. If you are hoping to see this charitable and talented performer live, go to StubHub to purchase your Jose Carreras tickets.
