Josep Maria Carreras i Coll is a Catalan tenor particularly known for his performances in the operas of Verdi and Puccini. He made his debut on the opera stage at the age of 11 as Trujamán in Manuel de Falla’s El retablo de Maese Pedro and went on to a career that encompassed over 60 roles on the stages of the world’s leading opera houses and in the recording studio.
Carreras is also known for his humanitarian work as the president of the José Carreras International Leukaemia Foundation (La Fundació Internacional Josep Carreras per a la Lluita contra la Leucèmia), which he established following his own recovery from the disease in 1988.
