Award-winning Venezuelan soprano Samuel Mariño’s natural musicality and unique vocal talent have set the stage for a career that allows him to explore a wide range of operatic roles in the baroque and classical repertoire. Recent opera highlights include Handel’s Berenice and Gluck’s Angigono at the Halle Handel Festival, and Zhou Long’s Madame White Snake at Opéra Comique, and The Mysteries of Desire with Royal Danish Opera.
A burgeoning discography includes Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with the Orchestre de l’Opéra Royal (Versailles) and his debut solo album Care pupille, a collection of rarities by Handel and Gluck with the Halle Handel Festival Orchestra.
Samuel studied at the National Conservatory of Music in Caracas and at the Paris Conservatory. Following his passion for rediscovering music and innovating period performance practice, Samuel founded Ensemble Teseo in 2019, with which he aims to bring forgotten baroque works and techniques to mainstream opera and concert stages.
