Mr. Fabiano has performed at the premier Opera houses in the world such as The Metropolitan, The San Francisco Opera, Opéra National de Paris – Opéra Bastille, Canadian Opera, Seattle Opera. Aside from being a renowned opera singer, Mr. Fabiano cares very deeply about his métier and the field of opera. He sees that there is peril in some places and is passionate about finding diverse ways to impact the youth and make opera mainstream again, as it was fifty, seventy, and eighty years ago. He wants to create awareness of the art form so it can be put into the same market place as all the other genres of music. Therefore, he has taken initiatives such as doing outreach with kids, teaching SKYPE classes and courses, helping them answer questions about music and the arts, among others. He strongly believes that there are longer term consequences when we shortchange education in the arts. Michael co-founded Art Smart, a non profit organization that provides free voice lessons to underserved students in Philadelphia, Newark, and San Francisco.

With his unique perspective on the future of the opera industry, he has agreed to act as an artistic advisor of Gulfshore Opera.
