Following his studies at the Conservatorio Vincenzo Bellini, the Palermo-born lyric tenor made his professional debut as Don Ottavio/Don Giovanni in Padua. Since then, Fanale has made a memorable impression at such prestigious houses as the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, the Vienna State Opera, the Opéra National de Paris, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and Berlin State Opera, among many others. Claudio Abbado, Daniele Gatti, James Levine, Kurt Masur, and Zubin Mehta are just a few of the prominent conductors with whom Fanale has collaborated. He includes in his repertoire leading roles by Gluck, Mozart, Donizetti, Gounod, Berlioz, and Bizet. In addition to Tamino at TDO, recent successes have included Ferrando/Così fan tutte (London’s Royal Opera House, Munich’s Bavarian State Opera), the title role/La clemenza di Tito (Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu), Pylade/Iphigénie en Tauride (Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Élysées), Iopas/Les Troyens (Vienna State Opera), and Florestano/Ferdinando Paër’s Leonora (Innsbruck Early Music Festival). Fanale appears on CD in the acclaimed Aida recording led by Antonio Pappano with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
