Marcelo Puente | Meet the Artists
Tenor. Title role in Faust.
Hailing from Argentina, Marcelo makes his WNO debut after engagements at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Oper Stuttgart, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, Hamburg State Opera, State Opera Prague, and more.
The in-demand tenor studied at the Córdoba Conservatory and Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires, with Renato Sassola. Other roles in his developing repertoire include Turridu in Cavalleria Rusticana, Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur, and Calaf in Turandot.
Fun fact: If Marcelo could pick three opera characters to have dinner with, he says he’d discuss love, destiny, politics, songs, and poetry with Manrico (Il trovatore), Don Alvaro (La forza del destino), and Radames (Aida).
