Olivia Salvadori

Olivia Salvadori is a classically trained soprano, an operatic solo performer and recording artist.

She has always perceived the voice as a sculpture, as a vibrating material in which intimate and shared spaces become one, and can be lived and verified in a continuous process, thus becoming the root of vocal experience.

Olivia Salvadori collaborated with poets, visual artists and musicians from the most diverse backgrounds and performed internationally in venues like Camden Arts Centre (London), Serralves Museum (Porto), Hong Kong City Hall (Hong Kong) Botanical Garden (Rome), Triennale Museum (Milan), Donizetti Opera Theatre, (Bergamo), Kaaitheatre (Brussels), Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofia, (Valencia), MuseoNovecento (Florence) WienerFestvochen im museum quartier (Vienna).
