He recently took part in the Gala Lirico at the Philharmonic Theatre in Verona, with great personal success. Lately he debuted with huge success among the public and critics, in the role of Des Grieux in Puccini’s Manon Lescaut at the Teatro Comunale in Modena and the Teatro Municipale in Piacenza. In the wake of this success, the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa booked him to take the role of Cavaradossi in Puccini’s Tosca. It was such a success with the public, especially the second performance, that he was called to encore the famous aria in the third act.
Immediately after this success, he was invited to play the same part in the staging of the Tosca at the Teatro Grande in Pompei, a special event included in the Campania Teatro Festival 2010. Since 2010 and in the years to come, the artist will be protagonist in operas at several venues:
