Marco Saccardin

Current as of May 2023

The baritone Marco Saccardin was born in 1990 and studied classical guitar with Monica Paolini at the Francesco Venezze Conservatory in his home city of Rovigo, graduating in 2013. He went on to study lute with Massimo Lonardi at the Franco Vittadini Conservatory in Pavia, graduating in 2017. During his instrumental studies, he became a member of the Coro Polofonico Città di Rovigo, under the direction of Vittorio Zanon and Marco Scavazza. With the latter, he studied Renaissance and Baroque singing.

In 2013 Marco Saccardin became a member of the Coro della Radiotelevisione svizzera under the direction of Diego Fasolis, performing not only in concert works such as Verdi’s Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang and Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem, but also in two opera productions at the Salzburg Festival: in Norma under Giovanni Antonini (2013 and 2015) and in the role of a Scythian in Iphigénie en Tauride under Fasolis (2015). In 2015 he also sang with the choir of the ensemble Il Canto di Orfeo in Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s Die Soldaten under Ingo Metzmacher at La Scala, Milan. In 2017 he appeared in the title role of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza. In 2018 he began to work as a theorbist in the ensemble i Disinvolti under the direction of Massimo Lombardi. In 2019 he performed the bass solos in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the ensemble laBarocca in Milan. Since 2017 he has regularly given recitals in which he accompanies himself – as was customary in Italy in the early 17th century – on the lute or the chitarrone.

As the winner of the Tullio Serafin International Singing Competition in 2022, Marco Saccardin received acclaim from both press and public in his debut as Leporello (Don Giovanni) at the Teatro Olimpico. In spring 2023 he makes his debuts both at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo and at the Salzburg Whitsun Festival as Plutone (L’Orfeo).
