Tenor Freddie De Tommaso returns to the Peralada Festival after his debut in the first Easter Festival. Born in 1993, the young singer has been winning the approval and admiration of critics and audiences alike since his arrival in the world of opera. Since winning the Francesc Viñas International Singing Competition in 2018, he has continued to garner success, as he did when he took on the role of Cavaradosssi in the Royal Opera production of Tosca, becoming the youngest tenor ever to play the role on such an iconic stage and the first British person to do so since 1963. His magnificent lyric-spinto tenor voice with its powerful projection and timbre full of harmonics, and the passion and commitment of his interpretations, has enabled him to perform at some of the greatest operatic venues, such as Las Scala, Milan, Vienna Opera and the Royal Opera House. Accompanied on the piano by orchestra director Audrey Saint-Gil, the Italian-British tenor returns to the Festival to offer a powerful recital with arias and songs by Giuseppe Verdi. The programme, comprising a selection of some of the most treasured Verdi arias and some of his works least known to concert-goers, promises to be one of the high points of the summer, and an unmissable date for lovers of the lyric and great voices.
