“Tosca” at the Metropolitan Opera

In December 2013, Marcello returns to the Metropolitan Opera to sing one of his signature roles, Cavaradossi in Puccini’s Tosca, a role which he sang for the first time in Jesi, Italy, in 1987 next to the Tosca of renowned soprano Raina Kabaivanska. Shortly after, he made his American debut in the role with the Michigan Opera, and since then, he has sung it with enormous success in all of the major opera houses the world over, including Japan and China. His performance at the Royal Opera House in 2011, was unanimously acclaimed by the press: “Cavaradossi was a triumph”, wrote Classical Source; “he exhibited a fearless abandon, his big voice filling the House. He was notable in the quiet, tender moments, but it was in the powerful cries, such as ‘Vittoria! Vittoria!’… that he really grew in stature… [His voice} is a force-of-nature that makes Cavaradossi heroic.” The critic of Musical Criticism bemoaned his 5-year absence from the Royal Opera House, stating that “tenors of his caliber are few and far between.”
