Valter Borin graduated from the “Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory” in Milan in piano (1994) and composition (1998). In1992–1994 he studied conducting and decided to take singing lessons to better understand the different ways to use the voice. Through that experience it was discovered that he was a talented singer with a particular tone. He has been singing successfully several title roles for over 10 years in Italy and abroad.
He took the third prize in a competition in Lignano (1996) and he won the first prize at the
competition “Ferruccio Tagliavini” in Graz (1998). He made his debut in 1998 at Teatro Verdi in Pisa with Rodolfo in Puccini’s “La bohème”.
