Biography

Born in Clichy-sous-Bois, Seine-Saint-Denis, France on June 7, 1963, opera singer Roberto Alagna is of Sicilian heritage and is one of three brothers born to Italian parents living in France. He began his singing career performing in Parisian cabaret before switching his attention to opera and developing his craft as a tenor. After winning the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition, Roberto Alagna was offered a role in La Traviata, playing the character Alfred Germont in a Glyndebourne production. It proved to be the pivotal break in the artist's career, and he was soon booked for appearances at venues such as La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera. In 1994, he played Romeo opposite Leonitsa Vaduva in a series of critically acclaimed performances at Covent Garden cementing his reputation as an international opera star. Although known for his performances in the great Italian operas, in later years, he championed the cause of lesser-known French operas. Despite his stature within the world of opera, Roberto Alagna remains an enigmatic and mercurial character sometimes prone to emotional outbursts which have led to occasional criticism from promoters and audiences. Nonetheless, he remains an A-list tenor and a favorite amongst international audiences appearing in over 40 operatic roles and releasing over 20 albums, including 1996’s Chants sacrés (number 19 in France), 2005’s Chante Luis Mariano (number 4), 2007’s Credo – Airs sacrés (number 18), 2008’s Sicilien (number 2), and 2011’s Pasión (number 4). In 2019, he released the album Caruso 1873, which was a tribute to Neapolitan tenor Enrico Caruso. He followed that with Le Chanteur (2020), Al Capone (2022), and Seigneur (2024).
