Roman native Alessio Borraggine is one of today’s up and coming young lirico-spinto tenors. He is consistently praised for his impressive tone, his musicality and the physical embodiment of his roles. He is a winner of the Graz Vocal Competition Giacomo Aragall Prize and the Maria Caniglia di Sulmona study grant. His repertoire lies in the principal tenor roles including MacDuff in Macbeth, Luigi in Il Tabarro, Maurizio di Sassonia in Adriana Lecouvreur, Cavaradossi in Tosca, DonJosè in Carmen, and Dick Johnson in La Fanciulla del West. Upon his debut as Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly at the International Festival of the Aegean in the summer of 2017, “the Italian tenor..with a beautiful sound and a good technique, he convincingly conveyed the hero who initially marries the young geisha and then leaves her behind.” Most recently he was part of the Mascagni Opera Studio in Livorno singing the role of Osaka in Iris. He has been heard in concert in such prestigious venues as the Musikverein in Vienna and the Auditori of Barcelona, as well as venues in Valls, Spain, New York City, and Italy.
