Yuri Sabatini is an extremely talented Italian tenor who has been gaining popularity in the music and entertainment scene effortlessly crossing over between the classical and popular repertoires, with the remarkable ability to make every song he touches sound exciting and new thanks to his innate musicality and his rich and expressive singing.
Yuri achieved national popularity in 2008 England as winner of the male section of a Singing Competition for buddying opera singers organised by the BP Summer Screen and Royal Opera House, who gave him a masterclass with David Gawland in Covent Garden. This accolade saw him also performing live in Trafalgar Square to over ten thousand people, making a tremendous impression on the public and the presenter Gary Malone alike.
Over the last fifteen years, with appearances in a great variety of settings – opera theatres, concert venues, town halls, churches, private homes and retirement villages -his magnificent voice has been gaining widespread acclaim, building an ever-growing, loyal fanbase throughout England and abroad.
Boasting a charming combination of good looks and and a disarmingly modest presence, the tenor is equally outstanding in world-class rendition of well-known operatic arias (such as La donna è mobile, Che gelida manina, Nessun Dorma, to name a few), as he is in his touching interpretations of songs from the musicals, like West Side Story's Maria or Bring Him Home, performed with astonishing depth of feeling and artistry. With such a hugely varied repertoire, Yuri is the perfect choice for all kinds of events.
Gifted with flawless diction, sensitive phrasing, outstanding breath control and effortless, dazzling top notes, his is the kind of voice that thrills, delights and moves to tears people of any age and background.
Alongside his incredibly busy performance schedule, Yuri enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge of singing by teaching in his studio in North London and online to students who reach to him from as far as Ireland, Turkey, Italy and South Africa.
