Giovanni Meoni


Following performances of Il Trovatore, the Washington Post praised Giovanni Meoni’s voice as “dark and bracing as good Italian coffee, with virile strength in all registers and the kind of big, expressive delivery that’s tailor-made for this opera.” In the 2017-18 season he sings the title role in Nabucco with Opéra National de Montpellier and Teatro di San Carlo in Naples, and Renato in Un ballo in maschera with Gran Teatre del Liceu and Opéra national de Lorraine.
