Giuseppe Tomaselli (29 January 1758 – 20 March 1836) was an Italian actor and operatic singer (tenor).
Born in Rovereto, Tomaselli received a musical education in Milan with a focus on singing. In October 1781, he got a job in the court chapel of Prince-Archbishopric of Salzburg, Hieronymus of Colloredo. Soon he became acquainted with Leopold Mozart and his family.
Between 1803 and 1807 he worked as a chamber singer. At the age of 30, Tomaselli married Theresia Gschwendter. After the death of his wife he married Antonia Honikel. With his second wife he had a daughter, Katharina and three sons, Carl, Franz and Ignaz.
After the secularisation of the Salzburg Archbishop's Monastery, the court chapel of the prince archbishop remained in existence for some time. When it was dissolved in February 1806, Tomaselli went to Vienna to the court of Austrian Emperor Francis I. In the autumn of 1833 he retired from private life and left Vienna. For a short time he lived with his family in Salzburg, but then settled in Würzburg. There he died seven weeks after his 78th birthday.
