Born in Venice, the tenor Iorio Zennaro studied at the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in his hometown and then at the Centre for the Perfection of Opera Singers at La Scala in Milan. He made his début in 1980 in Mozart’s Bastien und Bastienne, and in 1982 won the International Enrico Caruso Competition in Milan, reserved exclusively for tenor voices.

His career has since taken him to major opera houses throughout Italy and abroad. He has had the opportunity to perform little-known and forgotten operas such as Gluck’s Les Pèlerins de la Mecque and Le Cinesi, Scarlatti’s Narciso, Galuppi’s Il caffé di campagna, Paër’s Achille and Pizzetti’s Assassinio nella Cattedrale, as well as operas in major current repertoire.

He has given many sacred-music concerts and recitals, and for some years has been a regular guest in Japan, singing in highly appreciated chamber music concerts featuring Italian and foreign composers of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He has collaborated with distinguished conductors and directors and participated in a number of acclaimed recordings.
