Bruno Robba, french italian tenor, started studying voice with Caroline Dumas at the Paris Ecole Normale. He had the opportunity to study with the great Alfredo Kraus. Bruno perfected his technique with JL Calvani and shortly thereafter won the Beziers National Voice competition. His first steps on the lyric stage were Pâris (La Belle Hélène), Gontran (Les Mousquetaires au couvent), then Janacek’s Our Father and Rossini’s Stabat Mater under S. Pavilek.
He has sung Rodolfo in La Bohème in Nîmes, Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte in Libourne (con. B. Ricaud), Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor and Duca di Mantova in Rigoletto in Valence (con. A. Tchevchouk). He sang Tamino in The Magic Flute (con. B. Giraud) at the Royal Theater of Rabat in Marocco, then Alfredo (La Traviata) in many different productions. In 2011 in Tokyo, he was Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni) under J. Hatori. Along with his flexible and powerful voice, he has been praised for his musicality and vocal stamina.
On the concert stage, Bruno has performed the solo parts in Mozart’s Requiem, Schuman’s Missa in C, Puccini’s Missa di gloria, and the Verdi Requiem, which he has sung numerous times, at the UNESCO palace, at the Invalides Cathedral and at La Madeleine under C. Diederich.
In 2013, after singing Rodolfo in La Bohème, he was hired by the Osaka Theater in Japan to sing Romeo in Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette. The same year, Bruno also made his debut as Don José in Carmen, conducted by G. Gérard-Tolini and E. Lahoz. Audiences appreciated his drammatic investment in this part that he sang again in a 2014 touring production directed by B. Jourdain.
In upcoming productions, Bruno will sing Alfredo (La Traviata) at the Grenoble Theater, then the title role in Gounod’s Faust.
In 2015, Bruno will debut the role of Vincent in Gounod’s Mireille, conducted by R.Boudarham.
Other projects include Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly), Hoffmann (Les Contes d'Hoffmann) and Mario (Tosca).
