José Carreras Concert, Budapest Aréna, 20 January
José Carreras, is a Spanish tenor who is particularly known for his performances in the operas of Verdi and Puccini. Born in Barcelona, he made his debut on the operatic stage at 11 as Trujamán in Manuel de Falla's El retablo de Maese Pedro and went on to a career that encompassed over 60 roles, performed in the world's leading opera houses and in numerous recordings.

He gained fame with a wider audience as one of the Three Tenors along with Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti in a series of mass concerts that began in 1990 and continued until 2003.

In his career, Carreras made more than 50 opera recordings. He also sang on non-opera albums, such as Hollywood Golden Classics (1991) and Mediterranean Passion (2008). Outside of singing, Carreras has written an autobiography, Singing From the Soul; the documentary José Carreras: A Life Story (1993) received an international Emmy Award.

Though he remains a popular performer, Carreras's career has shifted away from complex operatic roles in his later years—as he explained in a 2013 interview, "You can do certain things when you're younger, when your voice is full, but then you get older."

Carreras is also known for his humanitarian work as the president of the José Carreras International Leukaemia Foundation which he established following his own recovery from the disease in 1988.
