Born in Rome, Romualdo Savastano started to play the violin at the age of 7 and studied at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia of his home town.
He started his career as a musician in opera orchestras in Italy under conductors such as Nicola Samala, Daniele Belarinelli, Donato Renzetti etc.
He became enthusiastic about opera and started to study voice. He made his degree only three years later. His brother, the famous tenor Antonio Savastano, brought him to perfection as a baritone and so Romualdo Savastano debuted at the Teatro all’Opera di Roma in the title role of Macbeth conducted by Giuseppe Patanè.
Until 1993 he was busy as a soloist. After the death of his brother he decided to teach the technique, his brother taught him, he founded the Accademia A.R.T. Musica, established himself as a vocal pedagogue and started to organise events and master classes.
Besides still performing at Teatro all’Opera in Rome Romualdo Savastano is today invited to educate and teach specialists for voice technique in Italy, France, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Japan and South Corea - to enable them to bring young talents to perfection and to introduce them on a high level to the opera world.
During the twenty years of his career as a voice teacher many of his students have been award winners of International Voice Competitions such as the International Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition in Vienna, the As.Li.Co., the Concorso lirico Sperimentale di Spoleto, or the Toti dal Monte Competition and have started promising careers in Italian opera houses and abroad.
The so called “technique Savastano” was created by Antonio Savastano, who taught the basics of the belcanto and of the traditional Italian voice technique, imparted by all important voice teachers, and the only technique to be recognized at the really good singers of the past and of our time.
Maestro Savastano also includes well established somatic educations systems like Alexander technique or Feldenkrais into his lessons.
