Marco Berti is the Italian tenor currently most sought-after by the world’s major opera houses, where he is appreciated for the splendid quality of his voice, his timbre “all’italiana,” the force of his high register, his innate musicality, his stage presence and artistic accomplishment. Born in Como, he got his singing diploma at the “Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi” in Milan in 1989 under the guidance of Giovanna Canetti, he then continued to perfect his vocal technique with Adelaide Saraceni, Pier Miranda Ferraro and GianFranca Ostini. After winning the Concorso Internationale Giacomantonio, he made his debut in 1990 as Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly in Cosenza.
His extraordinary vocal qualities and scenic mastery have recently allowed him to count among his successes one of the most demanding and complex roles in the Verdian repertoire: Otello. The Spanish critic, Alonzo Gonzales of La Razón, who heard his debut in this role at the Festival de Opera de La Coruna in 2010, named him “The Otello of the future.”
His schedule for 2014 included Cavaradossi in Turin and Paris, Calaf in Turandot at the Semperoper in Dresden, Pollione in Norma in San Francisco and Otello in Naples. (Marco-Berti.com)
