Almost everything has already been said about the most Italian of the French stars.

[biography] =>

Born in a Sicilian family, Roberto grew up in a Parisian suburb, surrounded by music. His natural taste for music leads him first to a career as a self-taught cabaret singer. His career changes tack when he meets Gabriel Dussurget, manager of the Aix Festival. He participates to a young talents concert thanks to Elizabeth Cooper and wins the Pavarotti singing contest in 1988.

 

Since then, his career gets going: a first Traviata in Glyndebourne precedes his first steps at Teatro alla Scala. He’s only 26. He goes on with different leading roles: Duca di, Mantova, Rodolfo, Nemorino, Edgardo… Thanks to his stunning role as Romeo, he gets the Lawrence Oliver Award. The French public notices his perfect elocution and especially his revolutionary pronunciation of the letter “r”. But like the Sheakespearian hero, Roberto loses his wife suffering from a disease. He gets going with shows around the world.

 

During a La Bohème rehearsal at Metropolitan Opera, he meets Angela Gheorgiu. Their private and public life hit the headlines like Callas in her famous years. They performed together several operas as L’Elisir d’Amore, La Rondine, Romeo and Juliet, Faust… And Tosca adapted to the cinema by Benoît Jacquot. Revealed like stars, their problems and their cancelling are wildly commented. They break in 2009.

 

Roberto keeps on exploring a forgotten repertoire – Cyrano de Bergerac, Fiesque, Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame etc…- but also suggesting his new creations (Le Journal d’un Condamné, Marius et Fanny). At the apogee of his career, he performs the forgotten songs of Luis Mariano and Sicilian melodies to share his music with everybody.
