Where he is unanimously acclaimed by the public and the critics. His interpretations underline his clear phrasing, the magnificent quality of his voice, both mellow and powerful. And by many considered among the most beautiful in Italian opera.

Marco Berti’s extraordinary vocal qualities and scenic mastery have recently allowed him to count among his successes one of the most demanding and complex roles in the Verdian repertoire: Otello. The Spanish critic, Alonzo Gonzales of “La Razón”, who heard his debut in this role at the “Festival de Opera de La Coruna” in September 2010, named him “ The Otello of the coming years, of the future”.

Berti is in great demand as the Artistic Directors’ preferred artist at major theatres and festivals, where he is seen as the ideal interpreter, capable of taking on an ample and multifaceted repertoire of roles that in the past were performed by legendary names, such as Corelli, Del Monaco, Bergonzi, Domingo and Pavarotti.

Verdi roles

While Radamés, Riccardo, Adorno, Manrico, Ernani and Otello are his most admired in the Verdian repertoire, it is just as important to mention his Puccinian roles, which have brought him equal acclaim and appreciation for his vocal elegance and unrestrained scenic presence: Calaf, Des Grieux, Pinkerton, Cavaradossi and Edgar in the eponymous opera.

Great successes are also Marco Berti’s interpretations of Don José in Bizet’s Carmen and Canio in Leoncavalli’s Pagliacci.
