    About me

    I am an active musical theatre and opera performer currently living in London. I recently received my MA in Music Theatre from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Music, specializing in vocal performance, from Malone University. I have appeared as a lead in several musical theatre productions including Lancelot in Camelot, Lord Farquaad in Shrek, and Cinderella’s Prince and The Wolf in Into The Woods. I have also performed in several operatic productions including Papageno in The Magic Flute, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, and Major-General Stanley in The Pirates of Penzance.

    Acting experience

    Paolo is an active opera and musical performer based in London, UK. He has been most recently seen on stage in Freya Smith & Jack Williams' new musical The Limit, directed by Adam Lenson at the Embassy Theatre of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Other credits from RCSSD include The Anarchist in the devised piece The Plaza, directed by Maja Milatovic-Ovadia, and Tusenbach in Three Sisters, directed by Emma Gersch.

    Paolo's last appearance on the opera stage was in Nightingale Opera Theatre’s 2019 Young Artist Program as Dulcamara in Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore, Mustafa in Rossini's L'italiana in algeri, and Bidebent in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor. Paolo has also recently performed as Lord Farquaad in The Little Theatre of Tuscarawas’ production of Shrek the Musical, Lancelot in Carnation City Players’ production of Camelot, and as cover for Bob Cratchit in The Players Guild’s production of A Christmas Carol.

    In 2014, Paolo had his opera lead debut with Malone Opera Theatre as the title role in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro. Paolo has since performed for M.O.T. as Papageno in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Major-General Stanley and The Learned Judge in Gilbert & Sullivan classics The Pirates of Penzance, and Trial by Jury, Mr. Gobineau in Menotti’s The Medium, King Melchior in Menotti’s Amahl and The Night Visitors, as both Cinderella’s Prince and the Wolf in Sondheim’s Into the Woods, and as the Water Gnome in scenes from Dvorak’s Rusalka. Paolo has been seen in Opera Circle’s productions of Puccini's Le villi (Narrator), Smetana’s Prodaná nevěsta (Micha), Verdi's La Traviata, and Korngold’s Die tote Stadt.

    In summer of 2014, Paolo attended the international summer festival Sessione Senese per la Musica e l’Arte where he performed concerts throughout the Tuscan region of Italy and into Switzerland. Paolo also attended the University of Toledo’s Janus festival in summer of 2017, where he performed the role of Gideon in Adamo’s operatic setting of Little Women. In 2018 he attended the Resonanz Opera summer program where he reprised his role as Mr. Gobineau in Menotti’s The Medium. He has also performed with several choruses in the greater Cleveland area including The Blossom Festival Chorus, Good Company, and the West Shore Chorale.

    Paolo received a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a vocal emphasis from Malone in May of 2017. He also attained an Associate’s Degree of Applied Science in Recording Arts & Technology from Cuyahoga Community College in August of 2014. Previous vocal instructors include Gabriela Martinez, Dennis Lang, Carie Volkar, Cynthia Wohlschlager, and Heidi Skok.
