Alberto Sousa was born in Madeira (Portugal). In 2013 he gratuated from the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama's Opera Course, where he studied with Laura Sarti.

As an alumnus of the Solti Te Kanawa Accademia di Bel Canto he recorded a CD of Italian songs produced by Richard Bonynge, commemorating the 100th anniversary of Sir Georg Solti’s birth.

Alberto is the proud recipient of the Audience and Runner Up Prizes of the Fulham Opera Verdi Competition, a London-based opera company that then invited him to sing Gabriele in its new production of Simon Boccanegra (Verdi).

The past two years have been excitingly international for Alberto, with a tour of Bel Canto recitals in Japan, La Traviata (Verdi) at the Barga Belcanto Festival (Italy), 3 European tours of Orlando Paladino (Haydn) with Purpur Opera and his debut at the Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona), performing Mozart's Requiem.

Back in the UK, recent projects have included a national tour of Faust (Gounod) with Swansea City Opera, La Boheme (Puccini) with the Clapham Opera Festival, a concert performance of Butterfly (Puccini) at the Cadogan Hall and covering the title role of The Nose (Shostakovich) at the Royal Opera House.

Future projects include Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor (Donizetti) with Fulham Opera, Torquemada in L’Heure Espagnole (Ravel) in Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal, and Duca in Rigoletto (Verdi) in Rimini, Italy.
