Octavian Ene


Tenor Octavian ENE is currently a master’s student at the National University of Music in Bucharest, mentored by tenor Alexandru Badea. He also benefited from the guidance of sopranos Liliana Dumitrache and Madelyn Renee and tenor Ionel Voineag.

In his repertoire there are many roles of great difficulty in contemporary Romanian works, such as “A stormy night”, “Hamlet”, “Doctor’s Love”, but also in classical works, such as “Rigoletto”.

In addition to the repertoire of lyrical theater, the performer approaches other genres of classical music, such as religious, being a soloist in Mozartian masses, sung by J.S. Bach and other religious works, such as “Stabat Mater” by Rossini. The baroque repertoire of Bach and Vivaldi takes an important place in the tenor’s interpretive experience.

Octavian has performed on several stages, such as the Casa Costa-Foru, the Italian Institute of Culture, St. Joseph’s Cathedral, the Brâncovenesc Palace in Mogoșoaia, during various events organized by Bucharest City Hall and Buftea City Hall, on tour in Switzerland, Bulgaria, Germany, India together with the Ambassadors Music Theater artists.

Two roles are representative of his stage history: Tybalt from the musical “Romeo and Juliet” by Gerard Presgurvic and Tândală from the musical “Păcală şi Tândală” by Roman Vlad, the latter performing on the stage of the TEATRUL MUZICAL AMBASADORII. You certainly noticed our talented tenor with obvious acting qualities, in the role of Prince Country – Good from the musical ” Însir’te Mărgărite”, adapted from Victor Eftimiu, by Arlecchino from the ballet “La Piață”, adapted from Mihail Jora or in “Povestea Florii-Soarelui”, a show based on authentic Romanian folk music.

Among the distinctions with which he was rewarded as a TMA artist, we mention: the “Symbol, Tradition and Inspiration” Award obtained after participating in the XVIth RYAN INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL – New Delhi, India, as well as Special Awards at the XV SOMMERFEST FESTIVAL Nuremberg, Germany or WORLD CUP OF FOLKLORE 2019 – Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria.

Trivia: Although he is a graduate of the Mathematics-Informatics department of the “Gheorghe Șincai” National College in Bucharest, Octavian chose the musical field for which he prepared from an early age at the Ecumenical School of Sacred Music in Bucharest. Here he gained knowledge in the interpretation of vocal music, in piano and classical organ singing, as well as in the mastery of Gregorian music, which he studied with interest. He is currently a member of the vocal group of ancient and Byzantine music “Anton Pann” led by Constantin Răileanu.
