Àngel Òdena

Possessed with exceptional musical talent, a real passion for opera and an incredible stage presence, Àngel Òdena has been performing for nearly two decades in the most important opera houses of Europe and he is recognized as one of the most emblematic baritones of his generation. Born in Tarragona, he has a degree in Geography and History, which he has not used due to his passion for singing. He started studying singing and piano in his native town with Mercè Obiol and DolorsAldea, and continued his studies in L’Accademia Lirica di Mantova with Katia Ricciarelli and later with Eduardo Gimenez.   His great versatility as a singer has led him to a wide spectrum of musical styles, including a considerable amount of oratorio and vocal symphony, but he is at his very best in opera. His debut was in 1994 in La Bohème in the Teatro Petruzelli in Bari; the beginning of a career which now includes more than fifty operas.
