Decca Classics announces the eagerly anticipated second album of British-Italian tenor Freddie De Tommaso, entitled Il Tenore released on 10th June. Featuring some of the most iconic arias and duets ever written for the operatic voice, it follows his chart-topping 2021 debut Passione and a year in which the singer has taken Europe’s opera houses by storm. 

Declared one of The Observer’s ‘Faces to watch in 2022’, De Tommaso hit the headlines in December when he made his Royal Opera House role debut as Cavaradossi in Tosca in exceptional circumstances. Not due to make his first appearance until a week later, De Tommaso was called in midway through a performance when Bryan Hymel fell ill. De Tommaso’s performance brought the house down as he became not only the first British tenor to sing the role at the historic venue in 60 years but also the youngest ever. What was called a “historic moment” by The Times was followed by glowing reviews from the critics, with The Mail on Sunday writing, “A star is born. I don’t think anyone who joined in the ovation for 28-year-old Freddie De Tommaso from Tunbridge Wells… could be in any doubt that we were in at the birth of a great career.” Listeners can relive that night with De Tommaso’s recordings of “Recondita armonia”, “E lucevan le stelle” and the love duet “Mario, Mario, Mario!” (here with Lise Davidsen) on this album.
