Unlike many other tenors, Alagna has a diverse background in cabaret, giving him a voice that can cross the boundaries into many other styles and genres. As well as performing some of the great operatic arias, he will sing popular Neapolitan classics such as ‘O’ Sole Mio’ (It’s Now Or Never); ‘Torna o Surriento’ (Surrender), made legendary by the King, Elvis Presley and the great Tom Jones; and ‘Dicitencello Vuie’ (Just Say I Love Her) made famous by Dean Martin – this is truly crossover at its best!
Alagna shot to stardom with the blessings of Pavarotti himself. As a young man in 1988, he was invited by the legendary singer to perform at the Luciano Pavarotti International Competition. After just a few seconds, Pavarotti stopped him.
At first the young singer was distraught. But Mrs. Pavarotti later approached him, explained that her husband enjoyed the performance very much, and brought over the great man.
He told Pavarotti he was only there to find a teacher, not to complete. “No, stay with your teacher,” Pavarotti replied. “He is very good for you”.
“When I told my teacher, he started to cry,” Roberto told Cut Common. “It was a wonderful moment.”
Now we can finally hear this beautiful voice for ourselves.
