Angelo Moretti is a Canadian-Italian tenor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Angelo’s voice and stage presence led him to many opportunities and successes at a young age, notably winning the hit Canadian 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.

Angelo Moretti made his professional debut in 2022 with the Opéra de Montréal, performing as Ruiz in Verdi’s Il Trovatore and as the Teapot in L’enfant et les sortilèges with the Atelier lyrique in collaboration with the Orchestre de l’Agora.

In the early stages of his career, Moretti also performed as Count Almaviva in the University of Toronto Opera’s inaugural production of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia and as Martin in Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land. The summer of 2022 saw Moretti joining the cast of Dean Burry’s The Bells of Baddeck in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, where he sang as Lieutenant Thomas Selfridge, further expanding his repertoire.


During the 2023-24 season, Moretti expanded his presence in the Canadian opera scene with mainstage roles at the Opéra de Montréal. These roles included Don Basilio and Don Curzio in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro and Gastone in Verdi’s La Traviata. He also performed as Nemorino in Donizetti’s L'elisir d'amore with the Orchestre symphonique de Drummondville and Remendado in Bizet’s Carmen with the Orchestre symphonique de Trois-Rivières.

Looking ahead to the 2024/25 season, Moretti will perform as the tenor soloist in Handel's Messiah with the Orchestre Classique de Montreal at St. Joseph's Oratory. He will also return to the mainstage at Opéra de Montréal to take on the roles of Parpignol in Puccini's La Bohème and will reprise his role as the Teapot in Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, along with the additional roles of L’Arithmétique and La Rainette.

Angelo continues to find motivation in creating art that allows the listener to experience a sense of nostalgia; whether that be through an aria on the operatic stage, or an Italian folk song in intimate venues like living rooms or backyards.
