Angelo Moretti is a Canadian-Italian tenor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Angelo’s natural vocal emission and stage presence led him to many opportunities and successes at a young age, notably winning the hit national TV Show, “The Next Star: Supergroup” with his pop band in 2014. His closeness with his Italian roots fueled his interest and passion for opera and the traditions that go along with it. He resonated with the art quickly and began pursuing it fiercely, especially after hearing the operatic greats on vinyl records and studying with soprano and former student of the late Lois Marshall, Cindy Townsend.
Recent experiences include singing in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia as Lieutenant Thomas Selfridge in “The Bells of Baddeck”, a musical drama created by Lorna MacDonald and Dean Burry about the life and legacy of Alexander Graham and Mabel Bell, and making his professional operatic debut at the Opéra de Montréal as Ruiz in Verdi’s “Il Trovatore”. Performing Count Almaviva in UofT Opera’s first ever production of Rossini’s “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” in 2021 sparked a vivid interest in exploring Rossini and other coloratura repertoire. Angelo also performed the role of Martin in UofT Opera’s production of Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land earlier in 2022 and enjoyed exploring a truly realistic approach to acting with stage director Tim Albery.
In 2020, Angelo graduated with honours from his Bachelor of Music Degree in Voice Performance at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music. He completed his Master of Music degree in Opera Performance in 2022 at UofT’s Opera School, where he studied in the studio of Dr. Darryl Edwards. During that time he also had the privilege of working in masterclasses with the likes of mezzo-soprano, Susan Graham and tenors, Piotr Beczala and Lawrence Brownlee. Angelo is thrilled to be a young artist in residence at Opéra de Montréal’s Atelier Lyrique and continues to find motivation in creating art that allows the listener to experience a sense of nostalgia; whether that be with an aria on the operatic stage, or in intimate venues like living rooms and backyards, singing Italian folk songs
