  • Samuel Mariño Sopranist
  • Orchestre de l'Opéra Royal
  • Under the patronage of Aline Foriel-Destezet
  • Stefan Plewniak Violin and conductor


What if this “sopranista” were to become a worldwide phenomenon? With two CDs recorded in Versailles and a double-page spread in the New York Times, Samuel Mariño has earned his credentials among music lovers and fans of the mythical era of the castrati.

With his ductile, naturally high-pitched soprano voice, he presents himself as an icon of glamorous singing, perhaps with a fashion show twist?


For a tour that will take him from Gstaad to Madrid via Las Palmas, Lisbon and of course Versailles, the soprano has chosen a truly sensational programme. Handel (extracts from Giustino, Atalanta, Arminio), Vivaldi, Gluck and Hasse showcase the entire vocal palette of this singer at the very top of his game.


The Orchestra of the Opéra Royal de Versailles brings Samuel Mariño to the stage in exuberant, heart-rending works from the baroque repertoire, conducted by Stefan Plewniak: watch out for some truly fashionable talent!
