Mario Sammarco (1868 - 1930)

Sammarco, who studied singing with Antonio Cantelli in his home city of Palermo and later with Franz Americh in Milan, made his operatic stage debut in Palermo as Valentin / Faust in 1888. His Milan debut was at the Teatro del Verme as Guglielmo in Puccini’s Le villi in 1894, the same year in which he gave his first performance at La Scala, Milan, and sang in Berlioz’s La damnation de Faust at the San Carlo, Naples. In Madrid he sang the title role in Thomas’s Hamlet in 1895, repeating this in the 1895–1896 season at La Scala. Sammarco took part in several significant first performances at this time in Milan, including Gérard / Andrea Chénier in 1896 at La Scala, Cascart / Zazà (Mascagni) at the Teatro Lirico in 1900 and Worms / Germania (Franchetti) at La Scala with Toscanini conducting. He also participated in two premieres in Naples: Mugnone’s Vita Bretone in 1905 and d’Erlanger’s Tess in 1906, both at the San Carlo Opera House.
