Vittorio Grigolo Biography

Italian operatic tenor. From his debut as soloist in the choir of the Sistine Chapel to his role as leading tenor in the most prestigious theatres in the world, the career of Vittorio Grigolo is a story of talent, passion and dedication.
Vittorio Grigolo, born in Arezzo and raised in Rome, studies singing at the Sistine Chapel’s Schola Puerorum cantorum, under the direction of Maestro Domenico Bartolucci.

It is in the Eternal City that he first appears, at just 13, as the young shepherd in Tosca at the Opera House in Roma, beside Luciano Pavarotti.
At 17 he makes his debut as a tenor, the following year he begins to make a name for himself abroad, interpreting Don Narciso in Gioacchino Rossini‚Äôs ‚ÄúIl Turco in Italia‚ÄĚ (The Turk in Italy), at the Kammeroper in Vienna.

At 23 years of age, in 2000, he is the youngest tenor to inaugurate the La Scala Theatre in Milan with the Verdi inspired concert to open the season.
