Fuse a glorious 4-octave voice to the frame of the petite, smoulderingly beautiful, Italian-born PATRIZIA and you get what CBC Radio 3 is calling “Canada's Next Sensation!” Juxtaposing her rare dramatic coloratura soprano vocal prowess with rock, pop, techno and electro instrumentation, PATRIZIA pioneers a genre few could have ever dreamt of, and even fewer could hope to pull off! A bona fide diva, PATRIZIA owns the stage like a rock star, leaving her audiences breathless, while seamlessly instilling in them her passion for a classic performance art!

Growing up a staunch rock n' roller, PATRIZIA paid her dues fronting rock bands -- until one perception-shattering moment: she heard a recording of the legendary soprano Maria Callas for the first time! Stunned by the power, beauty and range of emotion in what she heard, PATRIZIA immersed herself in opera, heart and soul. Seeking out the guidance of world-class instructors, PATRIZIA developed her incredible voice with trainers like Stephanie Bogle, John Hess, Stuart Hamilton, Alisa Palmer, Tom Diamond and Paula Suozzi, to name just a few, and subsequently starred in numerous operatic productions. Despite earning critical praise from her peers for her distinctive vocals and explosive stage presence, PATRIZIA could not let go of her first love: rock music. Upon realizing this creative void in her life, the concept of marrying her two greatest musical lovers was like having a light switch flipped 'on,' - this was what she was meant to do all along!

And what response! From vision to reality, PATRIZIA worked tirelessly to bring rock opera to life, and has a mile-long list of accomplishments and accolades to prove that, yes, the world needed this! Her first single Rage produced by the late Kenny McLean of Platinum Blonde led the way for PATRIZIA’s first album, “The Edge of Emotion,” produced by Paul Milner (Eddy Grant, Keith Richards, I Mother Earth) a collection of the most celebrated classical arias, performed with fire, attitude and precision, set to classic rock instrumentation. Her last release, “My Beloved,” took PATRIZIA's rock opera vision to a whole new level, this time adding modern rock hits and even original songs next to revamped classical pieces. Produced by 5-time Grammy winner Steve Thompson (Metallica, Guns n' Roses, Madonna), the record truly brought to life her belief that opera is a living art form, integrable with rock, metal and industrial sounds, commanding, hip and important as ever.

PATRIZIA has also brought her passion to TV: her first video, “Rage” was featured at the 2001 Italian Film Festival and charted on Bravo! Television, where her second video, “Temptation” reached #1! Her most recent video, “Desperation” charted at #2 and was featured on BravoFact Presents: The Best Canadian Female Vocalists. Subsequently, she received a SOCAN award for her #1 song on Bravo! She has also been featured on OMNI1's Noi Oggi and even Fashion Television for her performance of Carmen's Habanera at FAT (Alternative Fashion Week), where she dou
