Franco Fagioli is an Argentinan operatic countertenor who possesses a three-octave range. He began his musical education with piano lessons, though he also pursued vocal studies at the Instituto Superior de Arte at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.
He was urged by Ricardo Yost, Celina Lis, and Annelise Skovmand to concentrate on training as a countertenor. In 2003, he won the Bertelsmann “Neue Stimmen” Award, and began singing in international opera productions and at festivals, performing with conductors Riccardo Muti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, René Jacobs, Marc Minkowski, and Christophe Rousset, among others. He has appeared in major countertenor roles, in such operas as Handel's Giulio Cesare, Ariodante, and Teseo; Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice; and Monteverdi's Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria and L’incoronazione di Poppea. Exploiting his uppermost tessitura, Fagioli has explored the castrato repertoire of Gaetano Majorano, called Caffarelli, the rival of the famous Farinelli, and music sung by the last of the operatic castrati, Giambattista Velluti.
