Roberto Alagna is a French operatic tenor of Sicilian descent.

From singing pop songs in cabaret for tips and hugely influenced by the films of Mario Lanza the largely self- taught singer moved into the world of opera.

He made his debut in 1988 as Alfredo in "La Traviata" touring with the Glyndebourne touring company. It was his performances in "Romeo & Juliette" at Covent Garden in 1994 that catapulted him to stardom.

In 1996 he married Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu and until their separation three years later the couple frequently sang together and made many recordings of both duets, arias and complete operas.

The two singers starred in a film version of Puccini's "Tosca" and Roberto played Romeo in a filmed HD broadcast from the Met alongside Anna Netrebko.
