The bass Maurizio Muraro has won important international prizes, including the 1990 Katia Ricciarelli International Competition, the 1994 A. Belli Competition in Spoleto, and the E. Waechter Prize as the best opera singer of the season at the Vienna State Opera 1999–2000. He has sung in major opera houses working with conductors including Muti, Mehta, Levine, Ozawa, Abbado, Colin Davis, Oren, Thielemann, Pappano, Bolton, Decalote, and Soltes. He has also sung under the direction of Viotti, Delman and Sinopoli.

He favours in particular all the Mozart rôles in which he can express his innate gifts for comedy, such as Figaro and Leporello. A versatile singer, he also performs dramatic rôles, including Verdi’s Fiesco, Banco, and Filippo II. His repertoire encompasses also Wagner, Rossini, Puccini, and Bellini. He has collaborated with the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Tokyo National Theatre, the Berlin Deutsche Oper, the Munich and Hamburg State Operas, the Brussels Théâtre Royal, the Ravenna Festival, the Verona Arena, La Fenice and La Scala. His films include Tosca with the Covent Garden Orchestra under Pappano and a DVD of Le nozze di Figaro at La Scala, and his recordings include Carmen with Sinopoli, Tosca with Pappano, and Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni with De Billy.
