The extraordinary and superbly talented José Carreras will perform for one exclusive NZ concert on Saturday, January 31, 2009 at Elephant Hill Estate and Winery located in Te Awanga, Hawke’s Bay.

With a stunning coastal location and magnificent views over vines and the Pacific Ocean, Elephant Hill Estate & Winery is the ideal concert location to host the internationally acclaimed José Carreras.

Gifted with a beautiful voice, José Carreras is considered one of the world’s greatest tenors and opera singers of his generation. With a phenomenal international performance career spanning over three decades and including recognition as one of the famous Three Tenors with Placido Domingo and the Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras continues to mesmerize audiences with his sublime tenor voice.

As a young 8 year old boy, José Carreras gave his first public performance on Spanish National Radio singing “La Donna e Mobile” by the age of eleven the young Carreras was performing on the stage of the Barcelona Opera House, the Gran Teatre del Liceu. Carreras was only 25 when he performed at the London Royal Festival Hall and English critic Alan Blyth felt compelled to write a lauded review that still resonates today - “Not only was his a profoundly beautiful tenor, typically dark-hued in the Spanish vein, but its owner knew how to employ it to maximum advantage and, almost as important, had the vital, vivid presence of a born communicator."

With a montage of stunning vistas from rows of vineyards, the horizon of the vast Pacific Ocean and the iconic form of Cape Kidnappers, Elephant Hill winery & restaurant blends contemporary architecture with the traditional values of wine making and a passionate love of great food.

“We are thrilled to have José Carreras perform at our winery for an exclusive New Zealand concert, to have one of the world’s greatest tenors perform here surrounded by our vines and with the winery and Pacific Ocean as a backdrop it will be an absolutely magical experience” said Günter Thies, Managing Director.

José Carreras will be joined on stage by the Vector Wellington Orchestra, and guest Soprano Anna Leese.
