Marco is a great singer and actor who is investing himself completely to fulfill the demands of representing a character on stage. Both his vocal and physical power and skills allow him to perform freely without limits.

But he is also concerned about what is going on around him, both socially and in a theatrical sense. This makes him a wonderful colleague and a person great to work with.

I had the joy to collaborate with Marco Stella in several opera productions and also to observe him in other performances at the Gothenburg Opera House.

Marco Stella is a singer and a performer of great intensity and temperament. With his dark and intense vocal timbre he always achieves the depth of a character. He is a true and complete artist.

Marco is an exceptional artist and colleague on stage and off. His rendition of the title role of Rigoletto with The Cleveland Opera at The Ohio Theater, PlayhouseSquare created a center around which the fabric of the entire production was woven and magnified.
Marco’s acting talent matches his vocal brilliance, thus constituting a complete package that every opera director is searching for and every audience member is craving to see and hear.
