Established as one of the world’s leading Italian tenors, Vittorio Grigòlo has performed with the Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, La Scala and more. Throughout his career, an integral part of his success has been in French operas. His international breakthrough came in the role of Des Grieux in Massenet’s Manon at the Royal Opera House in 2010. Grigòlo’s new album, ‘The Romantic Hero,’ is his first of all French repertoire and explores the big romantic arias that suit his voice and temperament perfectly.
