Tiziano Bracci is a true buffo bass of the highest order...His blustery acting and his powerful singing would stand up to scrutiny anywhere today.Simon Thompson, The Opera Critic
Italian bass-baritone, Tiziano Bracci, begins the 2014-15 Season at Oper Koeln with his role debut as Don Alfonso Cosi fan tutte. He returns to France to appear as Dr. Bartolo—his signature role—in the Sivadier production of Il Barbiere di Siviglia (a role he inaugurated with great success at Opera de Lille) in Limoges, a production that also tours to Caen, Reims and Dijon.
Previous appearances at Oper Koeln include Il Sagrestano Tosca, a role he recently sang at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and Melitone La Forza del Destino, a role he previously sang at Vienna State Opera in the new production by David Pountney.
The artist’s professional journey began at the Deutsche Oper Berlin where he was a member of the ensemble in 2007, and where he first sang his signature role, Dr Bartolo. Since then, Mr Bracci has appeared in the role at Scottish Opera, Theatre du Châtelet in Paris, Bayerische Staatsoper Munich as well as in France. He frequently returns to DOB as a guest artist in the role.
Past highlights include his debut as Mustafa L’italiana in Algeri at Scottish Opera, the role of Antonio Le Nozze di Figaro at Monte Carlo Opera and as Schaunard in Torre del Lago Puccini’s production of La Boheme at the Abu Dhabi International Festival.

Le baryton italien Tiziano Bracci campe un Bartolo très convaincant, avec son refus d’un cabotinage trop excessif, et son élocution admirablement contrôlée dans les passages les plus rapides.Emmanuel Andrieu, ClassiqueNews
Dans son peignoir plutôt bonhomme, Tiziano Bracci souligne la naïveté égoïste du barbon, Bartolo qui n’a pas besoin d’éclat pour mettre en valeur une homogénéité sans relief excessif, mais non sans expressivité.Gilles Charlassier, Concertonet
Tosca, Royal Opera House
For once the smaller parts, especially the huffing and puffing, clearly hungry, Sacristan of Tiziano Bracci …added greatly to the fascinatingly gloomy realism of this Tosca.Jim Pritchard, Seen and Heard International
The Barber of Seville, Opéra de Lille
Italian baritone Tiziano Bracci, mastering his text and his character, holds in Bartolo one of his great roles. The actor holds both simplicity and effective comedy; the skillful singer, resounding and musically spot-on, with a beautifully controlled diction in the fastest parts (the famous sillabato).Emmanuel Andrieu, Classiqueinfo
Special mention for Tiziano Bracci and his interpretation of Bartolo.Webthea
Without going towards caricature, Tiziano Bracci displays the wide range required for a good Bartolo - warmth, disdain and fake authority.Sébastien Foucart, ConcertoNet
The Barber of Seville, Scottish Opera, Theatre Royal Glasgow
Tiziano Bracci is a properly zany BartoloKate Molleson, Herald Scotland
Tiziano Bracci’s Bartolo blustered and fumed while remaining musical, even if some of the fastest patter was a touch beyond him.Simon Thompson, Seen and Hear International
