The Semi-Final Round

Andrea Pinna-tenor

G.Puccini:Turandot:Nessun Dorma

My name is Andrea Pinna, I was born in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, on 17/08/69. My artistic career was born casually at the age of 33 years after an unplanned exhibition in a tourist village.
The experience was surprising because I felt a wonderful emotion in singing in front of an
audience. Since then I began the study of lyrical singing supported by valid and experienced
singing teachers, who have followed and introduced me to characters from the world of
opera. With tenacious commitment and sacrifice, in a short time I had the opportunity to sing
on important stages such as:
Milan - Parma - Bologna - Palermo - Sassari and of course in my city Cagliari, where I have
wonderful memories of my real audience, who saw me born artistically, and I will never
forget it. This passion of mine brought me in September 2012 to the production of a CD that
had a flattering sales success.

In the same year I was cast in one Musical company that performs in various musical shows important and highly sought after.
Mine is a path in continuous growth and with a great desire to improve, I continue to take lessons and to study with enthusiasm. In March 2014, I moved with my family to Edmonton,the most important city in the Alberta region of Canada. After an initial period of settling, I was contacted, at the end of my performance in a gala evening, organized by the Italian community, by the artistic director of the largest opera company in the city "Edmonton Opera" who offered me the audition to enter to be part of the lyrical chorus where I still work and collaborate in all their productions of important works. With this important company, I
collaborate in a series of concerts as a soloist, which take place throughout the year. Parallel to the commitment with Edmonton Opera, I carry on a concert schedule as a soloist that allows me to collaborate with other important musical realities that work and are well  represented in the operatic repertoire of the city. In August 2016 I was cast by the company "Pop Goes The Opera" to play the main role of "Turiddu" in "Cavalleria Rusticana" by P. Mascagni, it was a wonderful experience that I remember with pleasure and emotion, it was a flattering success that he gave me so much satisfaction.

In August 2017 the same company signed me again to play the main role of "Canio" in "Pagliacci" by R. Leoncavallo.
Here too the success was remarkable, filling my heart with joy, and strengthening even more, if there was need, the certainty that the results come only after a lot of work, and this I think is my humble opinion and example.
These are the most important events I have participated in since 2009, in Italy and in Canada.
