Davide Bazzali was born in Pontremoli, Tuscany, near Lucca, the hometown of Giacomo Puccini. He spent his informative years in Parma, the city of Giuseppe Verdi. He studied at the Alberghiero di Salsomaggiore and at the age of nineteen began his career as a chef. Since then, Bazzali has travelled internationally, exporting his passion and experience in Italian cuisine. He has studied theatre and voice, and has worked with several musical and theatrical groups in both Canada and Italy. Bazzali enjoys working in several musical genres, blending lyrical voice techniques with International rythms. In 2010 he was awarded a Prélude scholarship for his theatrical project, Bel Canto, financed by Cirque du Soleil, the Conseil des arts de Montréal and La Tohu.
Bazzali’s company CuisineOpera is an amalgamation of his two passions; Italian cuisine and lyrical voice technique. Offering themed events, CuisineOpera introduces clients to a variety of regional Italian dishes partnered with local music. Davide Bazzali is also the founder of the band OperaBazzali, a reimagination of lyrical music recomposed with world rythms.
