There he studied voice at the prestigious National Conservatory in Athens as well as the art of acting at one of the highest ranked acting schools in Greece, the Veaki. He has worked with numerous distinguished coaches and teachers in Europe and in the USA, most notably Salvatore Fisichella, David Jones, Jack Livigni, Dimitris Kavrakos, and his current teacher Oliver Sohngen. His US debut was in May 2015 at Carnegie Hall where he created the role of the High Priest for the opera Porphyra by B. Chrissochos. Following that he was invited to perform a Recital at his former acting school in memory of his first teacher and uncle, tenor Antonio Theba. Other credits include his dream role of Otello by G. Verdi with the Opera Company of Brooklyn under maestro J. Meetze. Now he is excited and honored to be performing the role of his childhood hero Heracles for maestro Karousos’ amazing composition Olympic Flame and also looking forward to adding several other roles to his repertoire.
In 5th July 2016, he performed the leading part of Hercules at the triumphal representation of the opera Olympic Flame in the Athens Square Park, Astoria. The opera presented with costumes and theatrical staging with the Lincoln Center cast. The reception of the crowd was amazing, full of cheer applause especially for the tenor Demetrios Tsinopoulos. It was the first time that a Greek opera presented in an open-air festival in America and artists got a Standing Ovation. 
Demetrios Tsinopoulos collaborates with Billy Chrissochos, Director of Modern Music for the Club of UNESCO Piraeus & Islands New York Chapter for the future presentation of the opera Olympic Flame.
