Ezio Pinza (1892 - 1957)

Pinza was born into humble circumstances and initially wished to pursue a career as a racing cyclist; but having studied singing at the conservatories of Ravenna and Bologna with Ruzza and Vizzani, he made his operatic stage debut in 1914 as Oroveso / Norma at Soncino in the province of Cremona.

Service in the Italian army throughout World War I intervened, but Pinza resumed his operatic career after its conclusion. He appeared at the Teatro Verdi, Florence in 1919 and at the Teatro Costanzi, Rome from 1920, in a wide range of operas including La forza del destino, La Gioconda, Il barbiere di Siviglia, Aida, Rigoletto, Thaïs, Salome and Tristan und Isolde, in which he sang King Mark in Italian translation. During 1921 he appeared in Turin as Oroveso and in Naples, where he later enjoyed great success with the title role of Boito’s Mefistofele.

At La Scala, Milan Pinza made his debut in 1922 as Pogner / Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and sang there regularly until 1924, being especially admired by Toscanini. In addition to repertoire operas he took part in several first performances at La Scala, including those of Pizetti’s Debora e Jaele in 1922 and in 1924 (the same year in which he toured Germany and Switzerland with Max Sauter’s travelling opera company) Boito’s Nerone, in which he sang Tigellino.
