Toti Dal Monte (1893 - 1975)

Toti dal Monte (real name Antonietta Meneghelli) trained initially to become a pianist, studying at the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice. However after sustaining an injury to her hand she turned to singing instead, studying with Barbara Marchisio at Mira, near Venice. Having made her operatic stage debut in 1916 at La Scala, Milan as Biancafiore in the local premiere of Zandonai’s Francesca da Rimini, she then sang in several smaller Italian theatres and in concert as well as undertaking further study with Antonio Pini-Corsi. At the Teatro Massimo, Palermo she appeared in 1918 as Gilda / Rigoletto and in the title role of Mascagni’s Lodoletta.

In 1921 Dal Monte sang in a performance at Turin of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 conducted by Toscanini, who engaged her for La Scala. Here she achieved great success as Gilda during the 1921– 1922 season, going on to become one of the leading coloratura sopranos active in Italy’s principal opera houses, including Milan, Rome and Naples.
