His musical career took off soon after his early public appearances at some of the most famous opera houses and festivals, from the Teatro alla Scala in Milan (Un Ballo in Maschera, 1975) to the New York Metropolitan Opera House (Tosca, 1974). Carreras has worked with the most famous conductors, including Herbert von Karajan, and his repertoire includes more than 60 operas.
