Roberto Iarussi commands a tenor voice of range, impact and visceral excitement that comes along but a few times in a generation.

Roberto Iarussi commands a tenor voice of a range, impact and visceral excitement that comes along but a few times in a generation, and that is if the generation is a lucky one!

His potent stage presence is palpable from his sound alone. In the theatre, Roberto Iarussi’s dynamism, concentration and acting talent combine to reveal that rare bird, a genuine Italian tenor for whom the frame of a stage’s proscenium is not too large but almost too small.

About the Artist

Roberto Iarussi: Even his name sounds like singing. His tenor can blaze, caress, thrill, enrapture. About_robertoHe is a singing actor who reveals with depth and finesse every aspect of the masculine experience. His sensibility is as at home in the grandeur of opera as in the bittersweet intimacy of Neapolitan song. No less is he a cross-over and pop interpreter who accords vernacular music the nuance and respect more frequently accorded only the classics.

As a very young man, Iarussi placed first in the prestigious Puccini Foundation International Vocal Competition, The Gerda Lissner Foundation competition and was the first recipient of the Andrea Bocelli Vocal Fellowship Award. He has sung internationally, earning kudos for Don José in Carmen and Calaf in Turandot, roles that require the daring of the matador, the endurance of the Navy Seal and a treasure chest of vocal resource.
