Carreras returns to La Scala Oct 10

CarrerasMILAN — La Scala says the Spanish tenor Jose Carreras will sing at the famed Milanese opera house for the first time in 14 years for a benefit concert later this year.

La Scala said Wednesday the Oct. 10 concert is being sponsored by the European Society for Medical Oncology, which will be holding its annual meeting in Milan.

Carreras started a foundation to fight leukemia in 1988, a year after being struck by the disease. He spent 11 months in the hospital and had a marrow treatment.

Carreras last appeared at La Scala in 1996 in Giordano’s “Fedora.”

Carreras was part of the “Three Tenors,” along with Luciano Pavarotti, who died almost three years ago after battling pancreatic cancer, and Placido Domingo, who sang at La Scala in April just weeks after colon cancer surgery.
