Tito Luigi Giovanni Michelangelo Schipa (born 18 April 1946), better known as Tito Schipa J. is a Portuguese-born Italian composer, singer-songwriter, producer, writer and actor. Born in Lisbon, Schipa is the son of the Italian tenor Tito Schipa. He studied singing and piano and made his professional debut in 1967 with a musical based on songs by Bob Dylan, Then an Alley.
The son of the popular tenor Tito Schipa, the young Tito Jr. started his career in 1967 with a show based on Bob Dylan's songs, arranged like a sort of rock opera. Fascinated by this formula he repeated it many times in his later works. A TV film also came in 1973, and the double album was one of the first examples of pop operas in Italy. Influenced by classical music, Schipa released a beautiful work that can be hardly described as a proper rock album, but surely falls into the progressive music field. Orfeo 9 included among the others, the first record appearance by two Italian artists soon to become very popular, Renato Zero and Loredana Bertè, but many important musicians are listed in the cast, including Brainticket's leader Joel Vandroogenbroeck and drummer Tullio De Piscopo.

Schipa biography TITO SCHIPA JR. is the son of the famous tenor of the same name. After a childhood spent between Los Angeles and Paris, he settled in Rome, where he pursued his musical studies. His career as a musician started in 1967 with a show based on a selection of 18 Bob Dylan songs, rearranged and put together to form a sort of rock opera ("L'Opera Beat") - a format that would become a constant of his artistic output. TITO SCHIPA JR's second album, "Io ed io solo", released in 1974 and written mainly in a singer-songwriter style, was much less successful than its predecessor. He used the pop opera format again in 1978, for a reworking of Donizetti's "Don Pasquale"; re-titled "Er Dompasquale", it was released as a 3-LP box set, and performed all over the world until the end of the 80's. Another interesting album by SCHIPA. was released in 1987.
