Introducing Verdi Baritone Alberto Gazale

Alberto Gazale
Italian barihunk Alberto Gazale is new to us and we spotted him in the cast of Verdi's Il Corsaro at the Teatro Verdi in Trieste. Since we're celebrating the 200th anniversary of Verdi's death, we were hoping to discover some new Verdi baritones this year. The final performance of Il Corsaro is on Saturday, January 19th.

Gazale graduated at the Conservatory of Verona and the Accademia Lirica in Mantua, where he specialized in singing Verdi. In 1998, he made his operatic debut in Verdi's Un ballo in maschera in Parma. He has performed at most of the major opera houses in Italy, as well as the Wiener Staatsoper, Deutsche Oper in Berlin, Teatro Real in Madrid and the Opernhaus in Zürich. His Verdi repertory includes Attila, La traviata, Il trovatore, Don Carlo, I masnadieri, Luisa Miller, Un ballo in maschera, Aida, Rigoletto, Il Corsaro, Macbeth and Otello.
