Biography

Alessandro De Marchi is in demand at the highest level for his interpretations of repertoire ranging from the early Baroque through the works of Mozart, Haydn and their contemporaries, to the late Bel Canto masterpieces.

Engagements this season include Don Giovanni at the Staatsoper Berlin, Guillaume Tell at the Staatsoper Hannover, Il Barbiere di Siviglia at both the Teatro Regio in Turin and the Semperoper Dresden, and the Weihnachtsoratorium at the Hamburg Ballet.

With the Staatskapelle Berlin, he launched a special project dedicated to The Art of Fugue.

Projects with his own period Ensemble, the Academia Montis Regalis, embrace performances at the Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci and Wigmore Hall in London. Since 2009 De Marchi has held the position of Artistic Director at the Innsbruck Festival and will continue so until 2021.

A passionate advocate for lesser-known works, he has championed Cimarosa’s Matrimonio segreto and Graun’s Cesare e Cleopatra (Staatsoper Berlin), Hasse’s Cleofide (Dresden), Haydn’s Orlando Paladino (Concertgebouw Amsterdam) and Pergolesi’s Olimpiade (Teatro San Carlo di Napoli, Innsbruck and the Pergolesi Festival in Jesi).

Encounters with Haydn include L’Isola disabitata at the Staatsoper Berlin and Innsbruck. Mozart forms an extensive part of his activities: De Marchi has led performances of La Clemenza di Tito (Innsbruck and the National Theatre in Prague), Don Giovanni (Hamburg), Così fan tutte (Brussels) and Le Nozze di Figaro (Berlin State Opera) as well as Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Dresden).
Other operatic engagements embrace Dido and Aeneas (Florence), L’Incoronazione di Poppea (Oslo), Anna Bolena (Cologne), Don Pasquale and La Vestale (Brussels).

An extensive discography includes La Sonnambula with Cecilia Bartoli and Juan Diego Flórez for Decca; L’Olimpiade, La Stellidaura vendicante, Flavius Bertaridus and the CD “Handel-Caldara: Carmelite Vespers 1709” for Sony/Harmonia Mundi; Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno for Hyperion; Vivaldi’s Juditha Triumphans and Orlando finto pazzo for Naïve; L’Incoronazione di Poppea for EuroArts and L’Elisir d’amore for Dynamic (DVD).
