Vittorio Grigòlo, an exclusive Sony Classical artist, releases his first all-French recording,The Romantic Hero. For the new album, the celebrated Italian tenor has selected excerpts from leading roles in operas of Massenet, Gounod, Meyerbeer, Halévy, Bizet, and Offenbach. Although Vittorio is established as one of his generation's leading interpreters of Italian lyric-tenor roles, the French hero has, in fact, provided a key vehicle in propelling him to international recognition. Particularly significant was his triumph in 2010 as Des Grieux in Manon, opposite Anna Netrebko, at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
