Roberto Alagna is heartily welcomed both in opera houses and concert halls and on festivals. In his thirty-year career the French-Sicilian tenor could include into its repertoire over sixty roles - he has already performed as Alfredo Kalaf, Cavaradossi, Don Carlo, Don José, Faust, Manrico, Nemorino, Othello, Radames, Rodolfo, Romeo, Ruggero and Werther and many others. These creations have made the artist the most famous French tenor in the world. His passion for the new made him reach for lesser-known works such as: Le jongleur de Notre-Dame, Le Cid and La Navarraise by Massenet, Lalo's Fiesque, Francesca da Rimini by Zandonaia, Puccini's Gianni Schicchi and Chausson's Le roi Arthus.
At the end of 2015 Alagna made his debut in Berlin in the title role of the opera Vasco da Gama by Meyerbeer (a rarely put up critical edition of The African Woman). In 2017 he created an extravagant Cyrano de Bergerac at the Metropolitan Opera in the original version of Alfan's opera from 1935. It is especially for him that the two below mentioned contemporary operas have been composed: Marius et Fanny by Vladimira Cosmy (libretto written by Marcea Pagnol) and Le dernier jour d’un condamné by Davida Alagny (libretto written by Victora Hugo) – Première in France in 2014.
Alagna takes part in big events such as the moving performance of La Marseillaise, which he sang on July 14, 2005 before the Presidential Court on the Champs-Elysées or the recital under the baton of Michel Plasson, with whom he performed in 2009 in the prestigious settings of the Gardens of the Palace of Versailles. He also starred in the opera film productions: in Puccini's Tosca, directed by Benoît Jacquot (2001) and in Gounod's Romeo and Juliet directed by Barbara Willis Sweete in 2002.
Roberto Alagna was an exclusive EMI artist (1993-2004), and then of Deutsche Grammophon (2005-2017), and in 2017 he signed a contract with Sony Classical. Recordings for Erato, Sony, EMI and Deutsche Grammophon, which he has made over the past ten years, make up his discography that includes a wide repertoire: complete works, duets, oratorios, operas, anthologies of great works, popular and religious songs. Credo, Viva Opéra, Airs de Berlioz, Bel canto, Robertissimo, Luis Mariano, Sicilien, Pasión these are some of the many albums which include the singer's discography and reflect the diversity of his musical career. The artist also took part in the registrations of operas on DVD.
The album released at the end of 2014 entitled. "My Life Is an Opera", which consists of 15 previously unreleased arias and duets illustrating the life and career of the artist, garnered enthusiastic praise from critics and audience popularity.
In December 2015 Alagna received the honorary Austrian title of "Kammersänger." He started the year 2016 with a stage debut in Puccini's Manon Lescaut, taking a replacement in the New York Metropolitan Opera. In the spring of the same year he took the challenge of new parts: Azael in a concert performance of Debussy's L'enfant prodigue and Eleazar in Halevy's La Juive in Munich. In autumn 2016 he released a new song album entitled "Malena," in which he presented novel interpretations of the great Neapolitan classics. After a busy year 2017, in which, he took part in such events as the relaunching of Puccini's Turandot (Kalaf) in Covent Garden, at the beginning of 2018 he became the first Metropolitan Opera tenor who performed most often on the same night as Turiddu and Canio in - respectively - Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. In June 2019, the artist is going to appear as Pinkerton in Puccini's Madam Butterfly on the Stage at the Parade Square in Warsaw.
