Leonardo Capalbo (tenor)

'A radiant tenor with a clarion top' (Opera News), Italian-American tenor Leonardo Capalbo has garnered international acclaim for his performances throughout the United States and Europe. Lauded for his rich, lyric voice and dramatic intensity, Capalbo is revered at opera houses worldwide, including Staatsoper Unter den Linden; Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Teatro Real Madrid; La Monnaie; Lyric Opera of Chicago; Semperoper Dresden; and New York City Opera, amongst others.

A highly versatile artist, appearances include Hoffmann (Les contes d’Hoffmann) at the Royal Opera House, and in Lyon and Tokyo; Adès’ Powder Her Face at La Monnaie and in Warsaw; Tom Rakewell (The Rake’s Progress) at Teatro Regio di Torino; Alfredo (La traviata) at Gran Teatre del Liceu, Welsh National Opera, Grand Théâtre de Genève, and in Hamburg, Warsaw, and Dresden; Nemorino (L’elisir d’amore) at Glyndebourne Festival, Staatsoper Berlin, and Minnesota Opera; Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly) with Opéra national du Rhin; and Rodolfo (La bohème) and Roberto Devereux at Baden-Baden Festspielhaus.

With a move into the lirico-spinto repertoire, he recently debuted Gustavo (Un ballo in maschera) at Royal Swedish Opera; Cavaradossi (Tosca) at Minnesota Opera; Jacopo (I due Foscari) at St Galler Festspiele; and Don José (Carmen) in Palm Beach, Seville, Grange Festival, and Athens.

A trainee of the Juilliard School of Music, The Music Academy of the West (Santa Barbara), and L’Académie musicale de Villecroze, Capalbo worked under the guidance of the legendary Marilyn Horne.
